Morgenster Lemon Olive Oil Sugar Cookies
What you will need:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar, plus more for rolling
Morgenster Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
How to prepare:
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In a bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a second large bowl, combine sugar and olive oil and mix with a spatula until it forms a grainy paste. Add eggs and vanilla and stir until smooth. Fold in dry ingredients until just incorporated. You should have a fairly soft, oily dough.
Fill a small dish with more granulated sugar. Scoop dough by the tablespoonful into balls and roll in sugar to coat. Arrange on a nonstick or parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving 2 inches of space between cookies.
Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until tops are puffed and crackly and edges just start to turn light golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Cookies are best enjoyed the day they are made, but will keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
