Totally Off Topic – #SugarCookies #ReluctantRetiree’sKitchen

Okay, all bloggers deserve to have one totally off topic category on their blog. I’ve been through several, and I’m doing it again. This started out as a basic Sugar Cookie recipe I found in the “Joy of Cooking” cookbook. As far as it went, it’s nice, but a bit bland. So here is a somewhat jazzed up version:

Basic Sugar Cookies – Cherry Flavored

2 1/2 cup all purpose-flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon cherry flavoring
3 ounces pecans, chopped

  1. Heat oven to 375 deg.
  2. Sift dry ingredients together in small bowl.
  3. Mix oil, butter and sugar together until smooth. Add eggs and flavoring and beat well after each addition.
  4. Add flour mixture and beat well.
  5. Form dough into small balls and place one lightly greased cookie sheet. If desired, flatten cookies before baking.
  6. Bake for 10-12 min. Cool on rack.

Makes 36 cookies approx. Here’s the nutrition info:
