Cin's been baking cookies..."Chocolate Crinkles"

Straws Kitchen


This is an old Betty Crocker recipe....I bet I've been making these for 50 yrs.
I know I have made them lots of times.

I was looking at some of her (BC's) cookie recipe photos awhile back and I think mine look just as good as hers (maybe better).

If you have not made these, give them a try.
