Sugar Cookies (drop)

In a medium bowl, mix together:

   - 2 cups flour

   - 2 tsp baking powder

   - 1/2 tsp salt

In a large bowl, whisk:

   - 2 eggs

To the eggs, add:

   - 3/4 cup sugar

   - 2/3 cup oil

   - 2 tsp vanilla

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until blended. Cover and chill for 30 minutes (longer is fine).

Preheat the oven to 400° and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto sheets.

Bake until lightly browned, about 7-8 minutes. Remove to cooling racks after a couple of minutes.


If desired, 

- Press the cookies with the bottom of a glass dipped into sugar or a sugar/cinnamon mixture.

- Add a tsp grated lemon zest with the vanilla.

- Substitute 3/4 cup brown sugar for the 3/4 cup white sugar. (Don't flavor with lemon zest if you do this and if you press them, use white sugar for that part.)
