I cannot take any credit for this recipe. It is one I found through Lily Pebbles. She made an IGTV of how to make them and I immediately wanted to try them. I found the recipe on her blog so am posting it here for you to read!
85g good quality cocoa powder
400g caster sugar
125ml vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
250g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
60g icing sugar
1. In a medium bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, caster sugar and vegetable oil. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the cocoa mixture until completely smooth and combined. Chill for at least 4 hours.
2. Preheat the oven to 180c fan. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Put the icing sugar onto a plate and using a tablespoon, spoon some of the mixture onto the plate. Roll the mixture into a ball, coating each one with icing sugar before placing on the prepared baking trays.
3. Bake for 10-12 minutes until they have cracked and spread. Let them stand on the baking tray before transferring to wire racks to cool.
And there you have it! Chewy but crisp, sweet but not sickly, brownie cookies! I would definitely recommend chilling the mixture. If you don't, it will be very difficult to roll in the icing sugar. I managed to make 13 out of my mixture, next time, I might try to make them a bit smaller. Let me know if you give them a go, you can find my IGTV of how to make them here!
