This is a nice anytime cookie, easy to make. It looks very nice on a Christmas cookie platter. I took the recipe from Collecting Memories.

One of my 2018 Christmas Cookie Platters
  • Ingredients:
  • 1 cup baking cocoa powder
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable (or Canola) oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

In medium bowl, mix together cocoa powder, sugar, and oil. Beat in eggs and vanilla until smooth and shiny. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir into cocoa mixture until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerator at least 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Scoop out dough with a spoon and roll into balls of 1 to 2 inches. Roll the balls in powdered sugar and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. The cookies will spread while baking so place them at least 2″ apart. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes depending upon the size of the cookies. They should be soft in the center, so they end up being chewy instead of crispy. Let cool for several minutes before removing from baking sheet. The yield is around 5 dozen, depending upon how large you make them.

I was craving something chocolate the other day and remembered these quick-to-fix cookies from my childhood.
