This cookie recipe is a family favorite. The cookies don't last long after they are baked. They are like a chocolate brownie only in cookie form.
Mix oil, melted chocolate and granulated sugar. Blend in one egg at a time until well mixed. Add vanilla. Mix dry ingredients together and stir into oil mixture. Cover and chill dough for several hours or overnight.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Put a teaspoonful of chilled dough in the palm of your hands and make a ball. You may have to "grease your hands" with oil or shortening. Roll the ball of dough around in the powdered sugar until all it's surface is covered. Place the balls of dough about 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake about 10 to 12 minutes. Do not overbake. Overbaking changes the texture of the cookies from a soft cookie to a harder cookie.
Makes about 5 to 6 dozen cookies.
