Chocolate Crinkles And Million Dollar Cookies

The latter using a sugar cookie technique.

You used to see more recipes that required this “balls, sugar, press with glass” technique, which is more or less what it sounds like. Roll the cookies into balls; moisten the bottom of a drinking glass with a bit of water and dip it in sugar; then flatten the cookie with the sugar-coated glass.
