The soft and chewy chocolate consistency of these cookies lead to their name - the disappearing cookies. Don't believe me? Here is how it works: First, bake a batch. Then after you've eaten your automatic baker's privilege of 2 or 3, then put them out where your family can see them. Finally, wait 3-5 minutes and you'll see what I mean!
1/2 cup stick butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa ( Do not use Hershey's cocoa for these cookies, or the cookies will taste bitter. Nestle or even the Aldi brand work much better).
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup oatmeal
Technically this recipe should make about 24 cookies. I like mine to be a good size, so it only makes about 15 cookies for me.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. They will harden a little as they cool.
Transfer to wax paper to cool for a few minutes before eating. Try not to eat too many in a row. ;0)
