Crackle Cookies

Quick to make and nice to see on the plate, they won't leave you with dozens of cookies to finish later. 
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 square (1 oz) unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 C flour
  • 1/2 to 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • powdered sugar
1.  In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar, egg, oil, chocolate, and vanilla; mix well.  Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.  Refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours.
2.  Preheat oven to 350°F.  With sugared hands, shape dough into 1-inch balls.  Roll in powdered sugar.  Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets.  Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes or until set.  Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Yield: about 18 cookies.

Robyn's notes: I took these and another batch of cookies to a potluck lunch and they seemed to go pretty well, but I found them a bit dry so I'm only giving them 3 stars.  

*** 3 Stars: Good. At least one of us liked this enough for me to make it again, but not often
