Recipe by PrimQuilter
READY IN: 1hr 15mins
YIELD: 4 dozen




  • Mix margarine and sugar in a large bowl.
  • Add oil and vanilla, mix.
  • Add eggs and mix.
  • Add flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt, mixing all together.
  • Let chill for a couple hours or overnight.
  • Scoop dough into tablespoon balls using a scoop.
  • Roll in powdered sugar.
  • Place on greased pan.
  • Bake at 350° for 11-12 minutes.
  • Let cool on rack.
  • NOTES:
  • You can make the cookies without letting the dough cool, it's just a bit sticky to work with.
  • I use a #40 cookie scoop which is about the size of a tablespoon.
  • I spray my pans for the first batch, but don't do it after that.
  • No need to flatten down the cookie, it will spread as it bakes.
  • If using a convection oven, set your temperature at 335° and bake for 10-12 minutes.
