Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1/2 cup canola oil
4 squares or 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate (melted or powder - follow directions for one ounce on the package because you will have to add canola oil per ounce for the powder which is what I use)
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. Pure vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 cup powdered sugar

Directions:
Directions:
Mix oil, chocolate and sugar in kitchenaid mixer with paddle attachment until blended. Add one egg at a time, allowing to incorporate on low speed, add vanilla, then slowly add the rest of the ingredients less the powdered sugar.
Chill overnight.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray non stick spray on your hands. Scoop and make i inch balls and roll in the powdered sugar in a bowl. Place on parchment paper on cookie sheet (or I recommend a silicone pad). Place 2 inches apart because cookies will spread. Back for about 10-12 minutes or until firm on edges and top is cracked. If cookies are larger will require more baking time. I touch the top of the cookie and if it does. Not leave a finger indentation then they are done.

Personal Notes:
My fatherís mother, Beatrice Marie Lindstrom was married to Roland Lindstrom. She was a stay at home mom. My grandfather passed away when I was three. He was the one I got my passion for JOhn Deere tractors and growing flowers - he was an award winning gardener as a hobby. They also had a koi pond and kept them in a greenhouse in the winter that you could see into from the dining room during the dead of winter in Minnesota. I never understood why they never moved to a warmer climate because they worked so hard to have a tropical feel around them all year round. My grandma would bake and cook, but did not have a real passion like my other grandmother. However, she made these cookies every christmas. I started the tradition of giving these as gifts because, who doesnít like chocolate right? Your friends have enjoyed these every year, making me feel special that I can make them for you. These cookies travel well, store well, and can be kept in the freezer. If they get stale, do not throw them out! Just get a tall glass of cold milk or coffee and dip dip dip!
