Hershey's Crinkle Cookies - question

I made chocolate crinkle cookies yesterday, and while they look delicious, they are actually kinda bland.

I prefer baking with butter, and I'm wondering if I could substitute melted butter for the vegetable oil. If so, would it be a 1:1 substitute?

Or, does anyone have a good choco crinkle cookie recipe that uses butter instead?

2 c Sugar
3/4 c Vegetable oil
3/4 c Hershey's cocoa
4 Eggs
2 t Vanilla extract
2 1/3 c All-purpose flour
2 t Baking powder
1/2 t Salt
Confectioners' sugar

In large mixer bowl combine sugar and oil. Add cocoa; blend well.
Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking power and salt; add
to cocoa mixture blending well. Cover; chill at least 6 hours. Heat
oven to 350F.

Shape dough into 1″ balls. Roll in confectioners' sugar. Place 2″
apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until almost
no indentation remains when touched. Remove from cookie sheet; cool
on wire rack.


Those look delicious! I wish I had a suggestion on the substitue for you...I hope someone does!
I make cookies that look just like that, only they're made with a cake mix, cool whip, and an egg. Also, they're so sweet they'll make your teeth hurt.

I don't know about substituting butter for oil making it less bland - what kind of cocoa are you using? You could try getting a tarter (or sweeter) cocoa and see if that helps up the flavor.
Check your cocoa and vanilla and eggs and make sure they taste excellent. Butter certainly couldn't hurt!

Make sure you don't forget the salt.

Throw in a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg or cayenne or a drop of orange or mint extract? A bit of toasted, ground hazelnuts or almonds?
