What makes a crinkle cookie crinkly?

When you bake the cookies coated in powdered sugar, the sugar will absorb moisture and dry out the outside of the cookie, causing it to crack.  When you use the cookie scoop to create balls using this cookie dough, you will notice that the consistency of the dough is almost crumbly.  You want it that way!
