- Yield: Six dozen cookies servings
- 2cups sugar
- 1/2cup vegetable oil
- 4ounces melted unsweetened chocolate, cooled
- 2teaspoons vanilla
- 4 eggs
- 2cups flour
- 2teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2teaspoon salt
- Powdered sugar as needed
- Mix sugar, oil, chocolate, and vanilla. Mix in eggs, one at a time. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover and refrigerate at least three hours. This is very important for the cookies to turn out. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take only enough dough out of the refrigerator that you will need for a cookie sheet so the dough stays cool and stiff while you work with it. Shape dough by rounded teaspoons into balls. Roll in powdered sugar. Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
