I always love sharing recipes that have been in my family, or passed down from friends with other people. Today, during the snow storm (check flickr for the photos!), my Mom and I began our annual baking insanity. Today we made Butterballs (with and without nuts), Snickerdoodles, Struffoli, and last but not least, Chocolate Anginettes. We still have 10 more cookies to make, and we’ve already made over 400 cookies in total. It’s a tradition I love, and cannot wait to pass on one day!

So now, I share one of my favorite cookie recipes with you. If any of you make these cookies, I’d love to know how they turn out. Chocolate anginettes have a dark chocolate flavor with a little bit of spice, which I feel is great for the chilly Christmas season. Sprinkle them with red and green shots for a festive look! They’re easy to make, it’s a great batter to begin with if you usually don’t bake cookies from scratch, and they’re fun to make!

they should look shiny before you bake them.

Chocolate Anginettes – Bake @ 350 degrees (F) for 10-12 minutes
4 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup oil
1 cup water

1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp vanilla
add milk until you have a creamy consistency (I use skim!)

Mix dry ingredients (mix by hand!!) and add oil and water. You may need to knead the dough before rolling it. Roll in balls and bake. Frost when cool (about 10 minutes).

Above you can see the finished product. The spicy chocolate flavor makes a nice pairing with the sweet chocolate frosting. This recipe makes about 105 cookies per batch, so if you’re having a large crowd over, double it. Unlike some recipes, doubling this one works very well. You can also roll it into a load shape and slice on a slant for a different look, although I prefer the rolled style. Enjoy!

    Last night, I had some oatmeal cookie mix and I couldn’t find my cookie sheet so I made them in a cupcake pan instead. Totally not that it’s for.

    They look amazing and delicious! They kind of remind me of the chocolate crinkles that I make but yours have cinnamon and cloves in them and sound (and look) more festive. I think I’m gonna make those and give them away to my coworkers for Christmas :)

    Unfortunately, when it comes to the kitchen I’m not that great. I’ve been trying to get better. If i was at least decent I would try this recipe. Your final product looks great. I highly doubt that mine would look at all as well.

    But hey, maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow morning and give it a shot…as long as I have someone guarding this kitchen while I attempt to bake.
