These cookies are delicious and not overly sweet. If you plan on making a frosted sugar cookie, these are a great base because they complement a super sweet frosting nicely.
Not Too Sweet Sugar Cookies Recipe
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk
3 3/4 cups flour
5 tsp baking powder
additional 1/4 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease baking sheets or line with parchment paper.
Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Add in extracts, milk and oil. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and stir until combined.
Put the additional sugar in a shallow dish. Roll dough into 1″ balls. Then roll each ball on the sugar plate to coat. Place 2″ apart on baking sheets. Use a wide, flat bottomed glass to press down on each ball to shape into a cookie form.
Bake approximately 10 minutes or until the bottoms are just starting to turn golden brown.
