Chocolate Crinkle Cookies,Christmas Special

I had bookmarked this recipe last Christmas but was a bit hesitant to bake as it contained eggs and as you'll know I don't like bakes which contains eggs despite being a egg lover.But henceforth I have decided that I will try my hands with some exclusive goodies with minimum eggs as my kids and other members of the family don't mind and as a cook we got to try our hands in most of the culinary forms.This cookie is named so because it resembles cookies with crinkles just like wrinkles.But they are very beautiful and I enjoyed baking it.It is very easy to prepare these beauties though it looks complicated.These cookies are different from the normal cookies as it is a combination of cookie and brownie.It was crisp,light as a feather,gooey and yummy.Merry Christmas dear readers and wish you all Happy New Year!!!
