Ube Crinkles


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp Ube extract
  • 1/2 cup Ube jam
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup confectionery sugar


  • NOTE: I used 3 eggs. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • Beat together sugar and oil.
  • Add 3 eggs then the ube extract.
  • Continue mixing the whole thing together.
  • Add in the ube jam. Keep on mixing.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture. Continue to mix until all ingredients are well-incorporated.
  • VOILA. The purple color looks beautiful. Cover the bowl with saran wrap then chill in the fridge for 3-4 hours or overnight. I recommend the latter.
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Pour the confectionery sugar in a plate. Form a ball or use a cookie scooper to form balls. Coat the cookie balls with confectionery sugar. Place the balls in a lined sheet pan. 1 dozen at a time.
  • Bake in the preheated oven, 12-15minutes. Carefully transfer each cookie crinkles in a cooling rack to cool completely. Repeat the process for the remaining cookie balls.
  • Transfer the cooled crinkles in a cookie jar or a serving platter.
