Recipe by cookiebaker
READY IN: 29mins
YIELD: 3 dozen




  • In a large bowl, stir together sugar and oil; I use a wooden spoon.
  • Add cocoa, blending well.
  • Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  • Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt; add to cocoa mixture, blending well.
  • Cover and refrigerate until dough is firm enough to handle, usually overnight.
  • Dough has the consistency of soft fudge.
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
  • Spray a#50 cookie scoop (the 2 tbles size) with Pam (you may have to repeat several times) and scoop dough out and roll in powdered sugar.
  • keep dough in fridge between batches.
  • Place cookies about 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheet.
  • Bake 12 to 14 minutes until almost no indentation remains when touched lightly and tops are crackled.
  • place cookies on wire racks and cool completely.
  • Recipe does not seem to double well; dough comes out too soft.
