Drop sugar cookies

Well since it is still cool outside here (not even 65 degrees today in Michigan, but it is supposed to be 90 in 2 days.. go figure..LOL ) I was wanting cookies one last time till after summer... When it gets hot outside I hardly turn on the oven ever... Usually cook on the grill or on the stovetop not the oven..way too hot... anyway here is an easy sugar cookie recipe... You can make modifications to this recipe adding different flavorings ( add almond, or lemon instead of vanilla), you can sprinkle colored coarse sugar on the top (thinking of making more of these tomorrow and using red, white and blue sprinkles for Memorial day :) ... use what you like and have... Enjoy

Drop Sugar Cookies

3 egg whites
2/3 cup oil
2 tsp. vanilla (or flavoring of your choice)
3/4 cup sugar (need additional sugar for tops of cookies)
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Heat oven to 350.  In small bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt, set aside. Beat egg whites with (same whisk used to mix dry ingredients)whisk until frothy. Add oil & vanilla mixing well.  Add dry ingredients using spoon to mix well.  Drop by rounded spoonfuls ( I used a scoop) onto lightly greased baking sheet.  In a small bowl place a couple tablespoonsfuls of sugar.  Dip fork tines into sugar and press down each cookie until flattened.  Complete until all cookies are done.  Sprinkle tops of cookies with addtional sugar.  Bake for about 15 minutes or until light golden brown.  Remove from oven and let sit for a minute, remove to baking rack or wax paper to cool.  Finish with remaining dough makes about 1 1/2 dozen cookies.   Enjoy

  1. I love sugar cookies, but I am yet to fined a recipe that I like....I would love to find a recipe that resembles the Amish fluffy sugar cookie. I am going to give these a try. You offer no-fail recipes...which I love.
