And a cookie recipe to go with it!
I got this recipe from my sister-in-law and have loved it ever since. Katya requested "just plain dark chocolate cookies" this year, and these always fit the bill.
Mix oil, cocoa, and sugar well in a large mixer bowl.
Blend in one egg at a time until mixed well. Add vanilla.
Gradually blend in flour, salt, and baking powder.
Chill dough for several hours (overnight is best).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease several cookie sheets.
Use a cookie scoop or teaspoon to shape dough. Roll dough in sugar (either granulated or powdered) and place on prepared sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-14 minutes, until set and tops begin to crack. Don't overbake. These are best soft!
