I think this recipe is older than I am... I can remember making them as a very small child. Then, I shared the recipe in 3rd grade for a recipe book. If there is any cookie that reminds me most of the holiday season, it's these...

The dough gets stiff to mix, but otherwise, it's a perfect easy recipe for children.

How to Make Chocolate Crackle Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1In mixing bowl, beat eggs, add water & shortening, then mix in cake mix.
  • 2Mix with fork to help break up shortening, then with a stiff spoon. Dough will start to get thick. Just be sure all the shortening gets mixed in very well.
  • 3Chill dough in refrigerator for at least an hour, or until ready to bake. (the prep time listed above accounts for the time to chill the dough)
  • 4Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use greased cookie sheets.
  • 5Roll dough into balls the size of a walnut, then roll in confectioner's sugar. Place on cookie sheets 12-to-sheet - they will spread a little when they bake.
  • 6Bake 9-11 minutes, with moist fudgy centers.
