These cookies have been passed down in my family for generations. The recipe comes from my great great grandma! She made them for my grandma as a child and that tradition has continued to this day.
They are served at almost every Sunday night dinner because they are enjoyed by all ages! Babies who are just getting their first teeth can gnaw at the cookie while the older people around the table dunk the cookies in the after dinner tea or coffee.
The simpleness of these cookies are what makes them shine, and really how could anything covered in cinnamon sugar be bad?
½ Cup vegetable oil
½ Cup sugar
½ teaspoon salt
2 ¼ Cups flour
½ Teaspoon baking powder
¼ Teaspoon baking soda
Cinnamon sugar for topping
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Beat the oil, sugar, eggs, and salt together until they begin to turn pale.
Add in the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix until combined. The dough will seem very soft, refrigerate for at least half an hour.
Take the dough out of the refrigerator and roll out to ⅛ inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. The cookie’s won't spread so you can place them close together!
Pierce each cookie with a fork and sprinkle the top with cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, until lightly browned.
