Chocolate Crinkle Cookies seem to be one of those classic cookies that everyone has a version of. I know they are a cookie that I have always enjoyed.
My gluten free cookie challenge for the year has inspired me to branch out and convert more and more recipes to gluten free. These gluten free chocolate crinkle cookies are one of the recent ones I converted and we loved.
The one trick to these is to be sure not to over bake them. Well, if you like crispy cookies, feel free to over bake them. In our house we prefer soft and fudgy cookies, so I am careful about how long I bake them.
If you are looking for more gluten free cookies here are a few ideas.
