What better way to use everyone’s favorite modern baking ingredient than add it to everyone’s favorite cookie? These Lotus crinkle cookies don’t just look and taste great — you’re going to love their amazingly chewy texture!
Yields about 3 dozen
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together oil, sugar, brown sugar, and Lotus spread until creamy.
Add eggs, baking soda, vanilla, and salt. Beat until combined and smooth.
Add flour and beat until just combined.
Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop out a ball of dough. Roll in granulated sugar, then in powdered sugar. Place on prepared baking pan. Repeat with remaining dough. For best crinkled appearance, you can roll the balls of dough a second time in the powdered sugar.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Alternate these in a stack with your favorite chocolate crinkle cookies to display with some contrast. Want to spice things up? Add some flavor to your chocolate crinkles with some mint extract, some cinnamon, or even a pinch of chili powder!
You can freeze these cookies, but the powdered sugar may dissolve and they’ll look less striking.
