These cookies are awesome. Think Tim Horton's chocolate Timbits - they're similar. YUM! I've made these little bite-sized cookies quite a few times, all with great results. They're fantastic sellers at bake sales, too, by the way.
1 c cocoa
2 c white sugar
1/2 c vegetable oil
4 eggs (I usually use 2 eggs + the equiv of 2 eggs in egg replacer)
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 c all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c icing sugar/confectioner's sugar
In one bowl, mix the cocoa, sugar and oil. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then add the vanilla extract.
In a second bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Next, combine these dry ingredients with the wet mixture. Mix well. Chill batter in the freezer for about 30 minutes or more.
In a shallow bowl, place the icing sugar to roll the cookie batter in.
After removing the batter from the freezer, roll into about 1.5 inch balls. Roll each in icing sugar and place on parchment paper covered baking sheet or a stoneware baking pan.
(This makes a LOT of cookies, by the way!)
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 mins. These should still be gooey in the center when taken out of the oven.
Enjoy these cookies! I'm sure you will.
