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
  • 1/3 cup 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.
