Makes 20 cookies.

Prep Time 20 min Bake Time 7 to 9 min Add. Time 3 hr Total Time 3 1/2 hr


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar (to roll the cookies in)


Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder in a bowl and set it aside for later

Add the granulated sugar and vegetable oil into a large bowl and beat it on medium-low until it is all combined. Then, add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat on medium-high. Slowly add in the flour/cocoa powder mixture and beat it on medium-low until the consistency is like brownie batter.

Seal the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 3 hours minimum, until it is chilled and you can roll it into balls. Once at least 3 hours are up (you can keep it in the fridge for up to 24 hours), preheat the oven to 350ºF

Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Put the confectioner’s sugar on a plate and set it aside

Use a medium cookie scooper to measure the dough into round balls. Roll the dough in the confectioner’s sugar until it is completely covered. Place them 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes, and do not over-bake. Allow cookies to cool and enjoy!
