What are Crinkle Cookies

Crinkle cookies are soft, chewy cookies coated with powdered sugar before baking to produce their unique crackled exterior. They are commonly made with chocolate but adapted to various flavors such as lemon, vanilla, and red velvet.

Today, we will be giving this popular cookie a delicious Pinoy twist. We’re making Ube Crinkles!

Making the batter

Good Ube crinkles start with a good ube jam. Although extracts can help enhance the ube flavor, nothing beats the natural taste of pure purple yam jam.

Good Shepherd Ube Halaya is our favorite, but I am sure there are other great quality brands available in the market. Of course, you can also make halaya from scratch if you like. 🙂

Quick Tip

  • Chill the dough in the refrigerator for about 1 to 2 hours or up to overnight to make it easier to handle and roll into balls.
  • To keep the powdered sugar from melting, especially in humid weather, coat the cookie balls lightly with granulated sugar before coating heavily with powdered/confectioner’s sugar.
