  • Summary

    The cookies are perfect anytime of year and theyâ??re so easy to make. Itâ??s a one-bowl, no-mixer recipe, and you donâ??t even need a stick of butter. One-quarter cup of oil for the entire batch keeps the cookies super soft and moist. Theyâ??re slightly chewy around the edges with a very fudgy interior and perfectly crinkly seams. Between the softening effects of the oil and the melted chocolate, this is a seriously moist dough that's more like brownie batter until chilled. You must, no exceptions, chill the dough for at least 4 hours before baking but overnight is better. Youâ??ll be so glad you made â??Christmas cookiesâ?? this time of year.

    Ingredients

    • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled

    • 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso granules, optional
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • about 1 cup confectioners' sugar, for dredging
