Chocolate cookies with powdered sugar coating. Very chocolaty, yum! 61
Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave.
Combine melted chocolate, granulated sugar, vanilla and vegetable oil in a mixer.
Add eggs, one at a time, blending well each time.
Sift (or stir) together flour and baking powder, add to wet mixture.
Let stand in refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.
Roll dough into small balls (no more than about 1 inch in diameter), and roll in powdered sugar until coated.
Bake for 12 minutes in a preheated 350℉ (180℃) F oven.
The temperature is very important: any lower and the cookies won't bake properly; any higher and the powdered sugar will glaze.
If you coat your palms with powdered sugar before attempting to roll the balls your hands will get less sticky.
Put the dough back in the refrigerator whenever you are not actively using it; it is easier to work when cold.
