Chocolate Crinkles

These cookies are from my childhood and couldn't be easier to make. I like to keep the dough in the fridge and bake only as many cookies as I can eat at a time so that they are always freshly baked. Last night I served these with homemade vanilla ice cream.

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
3 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cooking oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted


1. Melt chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring often. Remove from heat and let cool.

2. In a large mixing bowl beat together flour and baking powder. In a mixer, blend eggs, sugar, vanilla, and cooking oil together. Gradually add to chocolate mixture, until well mixed. Gradually add flour mixture to chocolate mixture. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours or until firm enough to handle.

3. Turn oven to 375. With your hands, shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place powdered sugar in a small bowl. Roll the balls in the powdered sugar. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

4. Bake for 10-12 minutes (only 8 minutes in my oven) or until edges are firm. Cool on rack. If desired, sprinkle with additional powdered sugar.
