Back when I first started baking, I always followed the recipe to a T.
1-1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cooking oil
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
approximately 1/2 cup powdered sugar
In a bowl, beat the eggs, cocoa, oil,sugar, baking powder, and vanilla. Add the flour.
Stick in the fridge, covered, for an hour or so.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Put the powdered sugar in a bowl.
Roll the cookie dough into balls and roll in powdered sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
If you have a small size cookie scoop, that is a perfect size. Scoop it out and it is pretty much a ball shape in the size you want.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. The edges will be set and the tops will be crackled. They will look soft and to the touch they won’t seem done, but they are ready to take out. They will finish cooking after removing from oven.
Remove right away to a wire rack to cool.
Makes about 48 cookies.
