Chocolate Crinkles (or Pixies)

recipe type: to snack, to dessert

In theory you can dump everything into the bowl and mix. But sometimes I feel the need to be particular, so I mixed well after adding each ingredient (in the order listed below). Either way should work, so you can decide how to proceed depending on how particular you are feeling.

The dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator for up to a week. Makes about 4 dozen.

what you need:
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
4 tablespoons oil (example: canola or vegetable)
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
powdered sugar for rolling

What to do:
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Combine all of the ingredients in a mixer bowl. Mix well.
Chill dough for at least an hour for easier handling. [My sister recommends overnight. I chilled mine for about 2 hours.]
Using a tablespoon, create a small dough ball and drop it into the powdered sugar. Roll to coat.
Place 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes.
Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes before moving to a rack to cool completely.
Store in airtight container (that is, if they last long enough to be stored…).
