Chocolate Crinkles

ok…these are the best Christmas cookies in the entire world.  My mom made them when we were kids…I love them.  Cyndi has taken to making them around Christmas.  here’s the recipie:

1 cup cocoa
1/2 c oil
2 c sugar
2 tsp vanila
4 eggs
2 c flour (perhaps 1-2 Tbsp more if the eggs are large)
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt

Mix cocoa and oil
Mix in sugar
Mix in vanila
Now, mix in the eggs one at a time
Mix in 1 c of flour and the salt
Mix in remaining flour and the baking powder.  The dough will be thin.
Put in the refridgerator overnight
Roll into teaspoon sized balls.
Coat with powdered sugar
Bake 8-10 minutes at 350 F

Note:  remove them from the oven even if they look underdone.  The trick is to pull them out before they set.  They should be chewie like a brownie….not crunchie.
