– 2 cups (240g) all-purpose flour – 2 teaspoons baking powder – 1 teaspoon salt – 2 cups (400g) granulated sugar + about 1/4 cup (50g) for rolling the cookie – 1/2 cup (118ml) vegetable or canola oil – 1 cup (85g) unsweetened cocoa powder – 4 large egg – 2 teaspoons vanilla extract – 1 cup (110g) confectioners’ sugar

Mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.  

Step 1 


Mix sugar, oil, and cocoa powder in a separate dish with a medium-speed electric mixer. Mix in the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla.  

Step 2

Add flour to cocoa mixture and whisk until moistened. Thicker, stickier dough. Cover and refrigerate dough for 4 hours or overnight.  

Step 3

Heat the oven to 350°F. Cover baking sheets with parchment or silicone. The remaining 1/4 cup of granulated sugar and confectioners' sugar should be in shallow bowls.  

Step 4

Roll tablespoons of dough into balls. First lightly coat each ball in granulated sugar, then generously in confectioners' sugar. Put dough balls on prepared pans, allowing 2 inches between them.  

Step 5

Bake each pan for 12–14 minutes until the centers are almost set. Refrigerate dough between batches. Softer cookies require a shorter baking time. Bake longer for crisper cookies.  

Step 6

Cool cookies on pans on wire racks for 5 minutes. Move the cookies from the pans to a wire rack to finish cooling.
