This is one of the classic cookie recipes from my mom's repertoire. My sister and I discussed it, and decided that this dough would freeze well - just roll the dough into balls, but don't dip into the powdered sugar. I tried to save some dough to try out the freezing method, but ended up baking the whole batch. Oh well, maybe next time!
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 cups granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup powdered sugar (mine needed less)
Mix oil, chocolate, and granulated sugar. Blend in one egg at a time until well mixed. Add vanilla. Stir flour, baking powder, and salt into oil mixture. Chill several hours or overnight.
Heat oven to 350. Drop teaspoonfuls of dough into powdered sugar. Roll in sugar, shape into balls. Place about 2" apart on greased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes - do not overbake!
