If you're looking for any last minute cookie ideas, this cookie is the one! It's basically a baby brownie, minus the crispy edges. It's absolutely delightful. My Grandma Harlow and Aunt Judy would always make these. They are without a doubt, my favorite Christmas cookie. It just makes me feel like I'm at home.
1/2 c. vegetable oil
4 squares (4 oz.) unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
Confectioners sugar, for rolling
Mix oil, melted chocolate and sugar with an electric mixer.
Blend in one egg at a time until well mixed, then add vanilla.
Stir flour, salt and baking powder into oil mixture.
Pour into a tupperware dish and chill overnight in the fridge.
Drop by a cookie scooper, which I highly recommend, into the confectioners sugar. Lightly roll it around and brush off any clumps.
Bake on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper at 350 for 10-12 minutes. I always tend to go for 10 minutes, then let them rest on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes.
Promptly remove from the cookie sheet and cool on a wire rack.
Once cooled, I neatly place them in a ziploc freezer bag and pop them in the freezer till Christmas Day. When you take them out of the freezer and slowly let them come to remove temperature, they are still absolutely perfect!
