Cheese Crinkles

I guess you have tried the Classic Chocolate Crinkles, but have you tried Cheese Crinkles? These are crinkles made with cheese. Yes, you heard that right. Cheese in crinkles? That sounds insane, but it is actually good! If you like sweet and salty bursting in your mouth, this is the recipe for you. I hope you could try it.

I know by now you have tried Chocolate Crinkles, Ube Crinkles and Red Velvet Crinkles. I recommend you try them. They are sweet and delicious. There are so many flavors to enjoy. Some make their crinkles with cream cheese filling. But how about Cheese Crinkles? Does this sound good to you? Yes, that chewy, salty and sweet in one cookie is really amazing. It bursts in your mouth like heaven. Did I need to say more?

How to Make Cheese Crinkles?

Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and continue mixing until the batter turns light and fluffy. Put the cheese and vanilla extract in the batter and mix well. Sift all-purpose flour and baking powder and add to the batter. Using a wooden spoon, mix it until well combined. Cover the bowl with a cling wrap and chill it in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Once chilled, use an ice cream scoop to get the exact amount of batter each time. Mold it into a ball with the palm of your hand. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Coat each dough ball in icing sugar. Lay the dough balls onto a baking sheet, making sure they are spaces in between them. Bake the balls in a preheated oven for 10 minutes. Let it cool before serving.

  • I suggest you use good quality cheese, for this one I use cheddar.
  • For even cookie result, use ice cream scoop to get the dough. Roll each dough in the palm of your hands until they are nice and round.
  • My other tip is to put the dough balls back in the fridge and chill for 10 minutes (while the oven is preheating) before baking them.
  • Make sure that the oven temperature is correct. Check the cookie after 10 minutes. Sometimes the key to a beautiful crack Cheese Crinkles is the temperature of the oven, how chilled the dough is and the time of baking.

To make the chocolate cookie mixture, add all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.

To make the coating, add flour and melted butter together, then add the remaining ingredients, mix until well combined. Add orange food coloring until you are happy with the color.

Ube Crinkles

Ube Crinkles or Purple Yam Crinkles has been popularized in the Philippines. It is a soft, chewy cookie in the inside and crunchy in the outside.

These are Filipino cookies made with purple yam (ube) and rolled in icing sugar. Chocolate Crinkles are its origin, and since Filipinos love ube, they gave this recipe a good twist.

How to Make Ube Crinkles?

In a large bowl, cream the sugar and the oil together. Then add eggs, beating one at a time. Next, add the ube (purple yam). In this recipe, I used 1/3 cup of ube jam but you are welcome to add more up to 1 cup, taking the texture of the cookie in consideration. Also, there is a store-bought ube jam that is darker than others, so it is really up to you. Pour in the purple food coloring, this also depends on how deep purple you want your cookies to be. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into the bowl. Mix with a hand mixer, but if it gets harder, then use a wooden spoon to fold the mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Scoop a tablespoon of the dough and ube balls, roll it in icing sugar. Repeat this step until all the dough is finished. Arrange them on a baking sheet, 1 inch apart from each other. Bake for 10-12 minutes in a preheated oven of 350 degrees or 180 degrees C.

NOTES:

  • Use only neutral oils like vegetable or canola for this recipe.
  • Make sure to buy a good quality ube jam or better if you have homemade ube jam at home. I used 1/3 cup of ube jam in this recipe, but you are welcome to add more, up to 1 cup. Please take texture into consideration if you are going to add some more.
  • It is advisable to refrigerate the ube mixture for at least 4 hours to prevent flattening the cookies while baking. It is even better if you keep it in the fridge overnight before making ube dough balls. By doing this, you are creating the beautiful cracks on top when they’re baked.
  • Using a regular spoon or an ice cream scooper, scoop the ube dough and make balls with it using the palm of your hand and roll them in the icing sugar.
  • Adding purple food coloring depends on how deep purple you want your cookies. I used 1 tablespoon for this recipe.
