Anna Sultana's Easy Sugar Cookies

Okay.  The kids want holiday cookies and your fancy, Christmas-themed, only-use-once-a-year cookie cutters are in a safe place.
Where ever the hell that is...

No problem.

These cookies look festive and are just the right size to dunk.  All you need is the bottom of a drinking glass - any size, glass, metal or plastic.  

If all your glasses are in a safe place - getting a little paranoid, are we? - then grab a jar or bottle.  Flatten, bake and enjoy.


If you prefer orange, almond, anise, rum, brandy extract or totally vanilla, fine.
You can also tone down or boost the flavouring.
They're your cookies.
If you don't have coloured sugar, no problem.  Just use the regular stuff.

                        EASY SUGAR COOKIES

grease 3 cookie sheets          
preheat oven to 400º           
bake 10 min.

Pour into a medium-sized bowl
1 jar red or green-coloured sugar (or about 1/4 Cup regular)

In a large bowl combine
2 eggs, beaten
2/3 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons lemon extract

Blend in 
3/4 cup sugar

Sift together
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Add to beaten eggs mixture.

Scoop cookie dough by teaspoonfuls and drop into the sugar.
Roll the dough balls around to cover them in sugar.
Place the dough balls on the cookie sheet.
Flatten with the glass and bake. 
Remove at once and cool on racks.
