Drop Sugar Cookies.
These cookies are incredibly good and easy to make. My kids always ask to make sprinkle cookies and it is a great way to spend time together and teach them a bit about baking.
1 stick Smart Balance Butter (or regular if you wish)
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract (optional but so yummy!)
2 cups Unbleached All-Purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Cream butter in mixer. Add oil and sugars and cream some more. Add egg, vanilla, and almond extract and mix. Combine dry ingredients in a seperate bowl. Combine with wet and mix well to combine. Freeze the dough for about 15 minutes. Scoop out with cookie scoop or spoons. Add sprinkles or cinnamon sugar and bake for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
