Chocolate Crinkles 

1/2 C pure Cocoa powder
1 C sugar
1 T ground coffee
1/4 C vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 t vanilla extract
1 C flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt

1/2-3/4 C confectioners sugar for rolling

In a mixing bowl, combine and mix cocoa, sugar and coffee. Fold in vegetable oil and evenly mix. Add eggs one at a time, whisking/mixing after each. Add vanilla.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Thoroughly combine into the cocoa/sugar/oil mixture. Dough will be somewhat sticky. Cover dough and refrigerate for 4-8 hours; dough will harden and set as it chills.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place confectioners sugar in a small mixing bowl. Roll dough into 1″ balls; thoroughly coat each ball in confectioners sugar and place 1.5″ apart on parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Allow baked cookies to cool for 3-5 minutes on parchment before transferring to rack to cool.

Makes 36 cookies; recipe may be doubled.
