Citrus Sugar Cookies

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup Lemon or Blood Orange Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • extra sugar for dipping

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Combine eggs, Olive Oil, vanilla and lemon rind in a large mixing bowl and beat well. Add sugar and beat until well blended. Stir in flour mixture 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.
