CHOCOLATE CRINKLE COOKIES (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 all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar (for dusting)

In a stand 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.

They are so so so good! And bonus: I’ve made them in advance and frozen them, and they’ll be perfect for the tailgate!
