If you are a fan of brownies, you are going to love these cookies! They are so soft and fudgy, and they’re covered in sugar….umm yes, please!!!!
Although you usually see these cookies on the internet around the holidays, these gems can certainly be eaten any time of the year:). Even though they weren’t the first cookies I made in my holiday baking this year, they are definitely one of my favorites!! Oh, who am I kidding, they’re all my favorite….wink, wink!
- 1 cup (120 grams) all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup (60 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon fine kosher salt
- 1/4 cup (60ml) vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup (60 grams) confectioners’ sugar (for coating)
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Add the oil, eggs, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients and mix (using a stand or handheld mixer) just until the dough comes together (the dough will be thick). Roll dough into balls using a tablespoon sized scoop. This recipe will make about 20 small cookies. Cover rolled cookie dough and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350° F. Remove rolled cookies from the refrigerator.
Add the confectioners’ sugar to a small bowl. Generously and evenly coat each ball of dough in confectioners’ sugar and place onto prepared cookie sheets (at least two inches apart). Bake for 10 minutes. The cookies will be soft when removed from the oven and will firm up as they cool. Please, do not over bake your cookies or they will not have the delicious fudgy texture you want.
Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!!!
I hope you make these fudgy powdered bites of heaven, and if you do, please tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi. I would love to hear from you and see your photos!
