Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Another holiday favorite from the Betty Crocker Cooky Book.  These will need overnight chilling.


1/2 C vegetable oil

4 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted

2 C sugar

4 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

2 C plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 C powdered/icing sugar

Mix oil, chocolate and sugar.  Blend in one egg at a time until well mixed.  Add vanilla.

Stir in flour, baking powder and salt into chocolate mixture.

Chill several hours or overnight.

Heat oven to 350f/180c.

Drop teaspoonfuls of dough into powdered sugar and roll around; shape into balls.

Place about 2 inches apart on greased baking sheet.

Bake 10-12 minutes.  DO NOT OVERBAKE!

Remove to rack to cool.

Makes about 6 dozen cookies
