Rolled in icing sugar and ready to pop into the oven!
A view from inside the oven...nearly done!
~ From "Betty Crocker's Best of Baking" ~ 1997
2 cups granulated Sugar
1/2 cup Oil (I use olive)
4 oz unsweetened Chocolate squares ~ melted and cooled
2 tsp Vanilla
2 cups Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
Powdered Sugar ~ For rolling
Mix granulated sugar, oil, chocolate and vanilla together. Mix in eggs ~ one at a time. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover and place in fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in powdered sugar. Arrange balls two inches apart on parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350* F for 10 to 12 minutes...until almost no indentation remains when lightly touched in the middle. They should not be overcooked as they become tough.
