The dough is really easy, as are all of the cookies in this book - I highly suggest it. Once the dough is ready, I scoop it out onto the sheet.....

baking in the oven
makes about 48 cookies
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or Silpats; set aside. In a bowl stir together flour, baking powder and salt; set flour mixture aside.
- In a large mixing bowl beat eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla and almond extract with an electric mixer until combined. Beat in the flour a little at a time until completely mixed.
- Drop dough by the teaspoon 1" apart on cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes until golden. Transfer cookies to wire rack and let cool. Frost with Almond Icing.
In a medium bowl stir together 1 cup sifted powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp almond extract and 2-4 tsps milk to make a smooth, spreadable icing. If desired, tint with food coloring.
****I highly suggest doubling the icing recipe so you have a nice thick coating*******
