Peg Bracken's Chewy Fudge-Cake Cookies (1960)

Find your saucepan and melt in it:
  • 2 squares baking chocolate
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil (not olive)
Then stir in:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, unbeaten
  • 1 tspn vanilla
Then sift together and add:
  • 1 scant cup flour
  • 1 tspn baking powder
  • 1/4 tspn salt
  Chill it for an hour. then, after dampening your hands, form it into little balls, roll them in powdered sugar, and bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

"These are handy if you ever want brownies and don't have any nuts. they are good as is, or frosted."

(Origin - "The I Hate to Cook Book" by Peg Bracken, 1960. NOTE - Author Peg Bracken was a comedy and advertising writer who wrote this best-seller "for everyone, men and women alike, who wants to get from cooking hour to cocktail hour in as little time as possible."  This hilarious, yet excellent, cookbook sold more 3 million copies in the 1960s.)
