Flat Cookies

Hi all. I made some chocolate crinkle cookies today which taste great. They're really chocolaty and fluffy but they're totally flat, resembling lace cookies. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot.

1/2 c. vegetable oil
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
4 sq. unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. baking powder
1 c. confectioners' sugar

Mix oil, chocolate and granulated sugar. Blend in 1 egg at a time. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into oil mixture. Chill several hours or overnight.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Drop teaspoonful of dough into confectioners' sugar. Roll into balls. Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes. Do not overbake. About 6 dozen.
