Ube Crinkles Recipe


  • 680 g ube jam
  • 2 tsp ube extract
  • 150 g sugar
  • 55 g vegetable oil
  • 1 pc egg
  • 250 g flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  3. Add the ube jam and ube extract and beat again until well blended.
  4. Gradually add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix using a spatula or electric mixer with dough attachment. The dough will be very sticky. Add violet food color, if desired, to achieve a deep purple color.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Alternatively, place in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
  6. Scoop a spoonful, 1 to 2-inch in diameter, of chilled dough and drop into a bowl of powdered sugar. Roll dough in powdered sugar to thoroughly coat.
  7. Arrange at least 2 inches apart on a baking sheet.
  8. Bake in a 350 F for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let the cookies stand for 1-2 minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack.
