Chocolate crinkle cookies

Ahhh holiday treat season, the best/worst time of the the year.

These cookies, in addition to being extremely charming to look at, are light and flavorful and perfect for tricking yourself and others into thinking they can’t possibly be all that bad.

Crinkle Cookies

Makes about 3 dozen cookies

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 cups white sugar

1/2 cup vegetable oil

4 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

In a medium bowl, mix together cocoa, white sugar, and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl; stir into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough, and chill for at least 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into one inch balls. Coat each ball in confectioners’ sugar before placing onto prepared cookie sheets, 1 inch apart.

Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool.
