I had not had these yummy cookies since I was a kid, (my mom's recipe) so the other day, I decided to make some for my men. They loved them, and Hubby very "subtly" hinted that these cookies could definitely come around again and again!
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 oz. unsweetened coco powder (1/2 cup)
3 cups all-purpose flour
Mix together the sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients, and stir well. Refrigerate for several hours. Lightly grease a cookie sheet, and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough into balls; then roll each ball in powdered sugar and place on cookie sheet. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. Remove before they really look done, but a toothpick still comes out clean. This way they come out deliciously soft and moist. And the dough does freeze well. I put half of it in the freezer, and made more cookies another day. Still yummy.
