You-Crack-Me-Up Cookies

I love chocolate! My husband knows that if he is ever in the dog-house, he only needs to bribe me with Lindor Truffles, or Ferrero Roche, or even just Peanut butter M&M's and he's off the hook.

Today I thought I'd try these chocolate cookies. They are chocolaty and sugary and just small enough that you need at least 3! (Although I would probably need 3 no matter how big they were...)

You-Crack-Me-Up Cookies

1/3 C vegetable oil
1 1/2 C sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 egg + 1 egg white
1 2/3 C flour
1/2 C unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C powdered sugar

1- Preheat oven to 350.
2- Combine oil, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Beat until well blended. Add egg and egg white. Beat again until well blended. Stir in flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt with a spoon. The mixture will be pretty thick.
3- Place the powdered sugar in a shallow bowl or a plastic bad.
4- Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in the powdered sugar until covered. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
5- Bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when lightly touched. Be sure to not overcook. Cool on baking sheet 2 minutes then transfer to cookie racks to cool completely.
