Let's post some recipes! I'm sorry I've been MIA, I've had a lot happening in my life that has affected many parts of it. Sick kitties, foster kitties, re-homing foster kitties, pending hurricanes, and much much more has been part of it. I'm sick myself, but I'm not going into that. It's better to spread good things than bad, telling people about the bad doesn't affect it.

Citrus Sugar Cookies!

2 eggs, beaten
2/3 cup vegetable oil (olive oil works too!)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon grated citrus rind (I used an orange, you can use a lemon or two limes, or a combination!)
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine eggs, oil, vanilla, grated rind, and sugar in a mixing bowl until well blended. I literally just used a spoon, this recipe is that simple.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl, then add to the egg mixture until well mixed.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto parchment or an ungreased baking sheet and flatten with your hand or the bottom of a greased glass dipped in sugar.

Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven to a preferred place to cool. Store in a container or zipper bag.

These are best once they've sat overnight. If you overbaked by a minute or so, it is especially good for them to sit overnight. They remoisturize themselves! Don't judge the cookie by the taste and texture when it first comes out, I promise that it changes most wonderfully!
