Christmas cookies



These are one of my absolute favorite Christmas cookies. My mom made them for us growing up and now I've been making them each year!

Here's what you'll need:

2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup cocoa
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
confectioners sugar

Combine granulated sugar and oil in large bowl. Add cocoa, blend well. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour and salt, add to cocoa and blend well. Cover and chill for several hours (or overnight is fine too). Shape into two inch balls. Roll in confectioners sugar. Place about 3 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy with a tall glass of milk...or egg nog (if you love it like I do!)

What are your favorite cookies to bake at Christmastime?
