[Filipino Recipes] Ube Crinkles

Ever since I made the Ube Macapuno Cupcakes from this post, I have been thinking of ways on how to incorporate ube in desserts. Of course, I already make an ube cake, and ube bars as well, but I’m thinking I could still do more with ube. Agree? I hope so!

A couple of weeks back, I tried coming up with an ube version of the crinkle cookie. Unfortunately, when I made it, it fell flat (literally) want to see a picture? Here you go. Too bad it was flat and just had too many holes in the cookie, an indication I added way to much leavener. But, oh my my my my! It was so good! I didn’t know where I got the strength to resist it because I was so tempted to finish the whole batch!

I was raring to bake this again to perfect it but too bad, I ran out of my favorite ube jam from Mountain Maid Training Center. Thank heavens from my family who indulges my baking addictions, they bought me a few jars to experiment with last week. Yey!

The final recipe I came up with was less sweet than the original one and I lessened the baking powder as well. The result? It’s just the perfect ube crinkle. It’s like eating a spoonful of ube jam, only it’s in cookie form. Yum? Yum!!!

And oh, a piece of advise? While it is good freshly baked, these cookies just keeps getting better as the days pass by. Want to see how I made it?

To make the ube crinkles, we start by mixing together all the dry ingredients – flour, baking powder and salt. Whether you want to sift it or dry whisk it, it’s all up to you. For this recipe, I just dry whisked. Worked for me. In a mixing bowl, cream together to sugars (white and brown) and butter until light and fluffy.

Cover the crinkle cookie dough with a cling wrap and let it chill in the refrigerator. I chilled mine overnight, but if you can’t wait, the four hours will do.

Ohhh!!! Another fun part! Place the powdered sugar in a medium sized bowl. There will be lumps in the sugar but it really doesn’t matter. We’ll just be using it as a coat. Now, get the dough from the ref and get an ice cream scooper. I used a .25 oz (1 1/2 teaspoon) sized scoop. I like small cookies, they’re pretty nice.

Roll the dough into a ball and coat with powdered sugar. Place them in the cookie sheet with parchment paper and bake for 7 minutes at 350F. You can make approximately 76 yummy ube cookies from this recipe.
