TIPS TO MAKE COOKIE CRINKLES CRINKLE
Making cookie crinkles is very simple. You mix the ingredients and make a dough. But there are several reasons why it doesn’t achieve the crinkle or crackled exterior. Below are some things you can follow to get the crinkled surface and why the sugar melted with the cookie.

- The dough is liquid-y. Make sure the flour is measured correctly.
- You did not let it chill for an hour in the fridge.
- Did you roll it in the powder sugar?
MY COOKIE IS FLAT AND HARD TROUBLESHOOTING
The outcome of this recipe should be a fudgy and soft cookie. If this cookie comes out hard and flat, here is what went wrong.
- Did you chill the dough? Chilling the cookie dough solidifies the fat in it. As the cookie bakes, it take longer for the fat in the cookie to bake. And the longer the fat bake, the less the cookie spread. This is also the reason why you have to scoop about 3 tablespoons of dough and form it into a ball.
- From into a round ball and arrange in a cookie. Make sure you have 2 inch distance to each other.
- Pat gently the top of the dough to achieve a hint of flat top.
- Place the oven rack in the middle of the oven.
- Bake in a 350 F oven. Make sure you pre heat the oven and bake for 12 minutes maximum. Remove the cookie from the oven and gently transfer in a wire rack.
