Ingredients:

 

1/3 of Batistini Farms Classic Olive Oil (plus 2 tbsp, if needed)

2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp of salt

1/2 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp of baking soda

1 cup + 1/2 cup of granulated sugar (or coconut sugar)

2 large eggs

2 tbsp of lemon juice

1 tbsp of finely grated, lemon zest 

1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

 

Instructions:

 

Preheat oven to 350 F. 

 

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder together. In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup of sugar and Batistini Farms Classic Olive Oil. 

After sugar and olive oil is mixed well, add eggs, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and lemon zest. 

 

Combine lemon/sugar mixture with flour mixture. Mix until a soft, but oily dough forms. Add more olive oil if necessary. 

 

Form the dough into 1-2" thick balls, and lightly coat in the remaining sugar. Line the cookie balls on a baking tray, and flatten until ~ 1/2" thick. Bake for 10-14 minutes, or until golden brown. 

Enjoy!
