Stir-'N-Drop Sugar Cookies


Baking with olive oil instead of butter transforms the traditional sugar cookie, giving it an extra kick of sweet flavor and a healthier profile.



Preheat oven to 325°.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

Combine eggs, EVOO, vanilla, and lemon rind in a large mixing bowl and beat well. Add sugar and beat until well blended. Stir in flour until just mixed.

Drop spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten cookies with the greased bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer immediately to wire racks to cool. Store in airtight containers.

Yield: about 3 dozen cookies
