(Adapted from What’s Gaby Cooking)

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs at room temp
3 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar for dusting

With a mixer, combine the cocoa powder, white sugar and vegetable oil. 

Mix for 2 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until evenly combined. 

Add the flour, baking powder and salt and incorporate all the ingredients. 

Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Measure out small ball of dough, ~ 1 tbsp of dough per cookie. Roll the dough into balls with lightly oiled hands. Coat each ball in powdered sugar before placing onto prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool slightly before transferring the cookies to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

This is the quintessential chocolate pie recipe. It’s made with good quality chocolate, and it has just enough sweetness. Top with some homemade whipped cream and you’ve got an elegant delicious dessert.
