Bust out those aprons – it’s cookie time! Between now and Christmas, I’ll be sharing 12 delicious cookie recipes for you to try. Share some with your neighbors, bring some to a cookie swap party, or keep them all for yourself. I won’t tell anyone. Promise.
If you’re happy it the weekend and you know it clap your hands. CLAP CLAP.
I am so thankful that it’s the weekend. The past few days have been full of doctors appointments, toddler meltdowns and figuring out our new dynamics as we venture out into public. Mentally, I’m exhausted and I am so very glad to have an extra set of hands around for a few days (husbands rock).
I don’t have much to say about these cookies (mainly because my brain is fried) except for the fact that I sent the whole batch to work with Alex and got an email the same day from one of his co-workers asking for my crack recipe.
So, if you only make one cookie this weekend, let this be it.
- 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar (for coating)
- Mix together the cocoa powder, sugar and oil in a medium bowl. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix until smooth and shiny
- In separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir into the coca mix until smooth
- Cover the dough with plastic wrap and put into fridge for at least 4 hours
- Preheat oven to 350F. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, coat each ball in powdered sugar and place onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper
- 5. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack
- Make sure you chill this dough - it will be really hard to form into balls without doing so!
