Meyer Lemon Sugar Cookies


2  C all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/4 C granulated sugar, plus more for rolling

1/3 C Meyer Lemon Olive Oil

2 large eggs

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Set aside.  In a larger bowl, combine sugar and olive oil.  Mix with a spatula until it forms a grainy paste.  Adds eggs and vanilla, stir until smooth.  Fold in dry ingredients until just incorporated.  You should have a fairly soft, oily dough.  Fill a small dish with more granulated sugar.  Scoop approximately a tablespoon of dough into a ball and roll in sugar to coat.  Arrange on a nonstick or parchment lined baking sheet, leaving 2 inches of space between the cookies.  Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until tops are puffed and crackly.  Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
