1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup confectioners' sugar
Combine sugar, oil and vanilla extract. Add eggs, one at a time; mix well. Stir in flour, cocoa, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
Cover; refrigerate for two hours.
Lightly grease a baking sheet; set aside.
Place confectioners' sugar in a shallow dish. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in confectioners' sugar. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 11 minutes; cool on rack. These cookies crack on top as they bake; thus the striped zebra look.
