Cookies
These cookies do not contain any milk products. Great for those of us who are allergic. You also don't need a mixer to make them.
Lemon vanilla cookies
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons lemon extract or lemon juice
3/4 cup corn oil(or vegetable oil)
Whisk together in a large bowl until ingredients are mixed thoroughly.
Add 3/4 cup white sugar, and whisk together until mixture is thickened.
Add 2 teaspoons baking powder. Slowly mix this into the batter.
Add 2 cups plus 2 Tablespoons All purpose flour.

Fold in with a spatula until completely mixed.

Drop by rounded teaspoons( pick two from the silverware drawer, I don't use measuring spoons) onto a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray( I like Crisco Olive Oil spray).
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.(Make sure to set the timer!)
If they are starting to brown on the bottom, they are done.
Watch these cookies carefully! They burn quickly.

Let cool.
Drizzle with glaze.

Glaze: 1 cups 1/2 powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
water
Mix the powdered sugar and vanilla with a spoon, then add the water 1 tablespoon of water at a time and mix in. Keep adding the water 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture is thin, but not watery. Drizzle over cookies.
Makes about 2 and 1/2 dozen
Keep these cookies in an air tight container(a paper plate in a gallon ziplock bag will do).
:idea:Tips for keeping the cookies from burning:
Always set the timer!
If you have dark cookie sheets, cover them with foil and spray the foil with cooking spray.
You could line the trays with parchment parchment paper instead of foil.
Don't use wax paper, it burns in the oven.

RE: Lemon Vanilla Cookies
a variation on this recipe is to eliminate the lemon extract and use a 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon in it's place.

Then these taste like cinnamon rolls.
yum!

Both variations sound yum to me! I'll have to try them.

ok., I was just curious about how they would turn out for someone else, and if my recipe directions were clear enough.

RE: Cookies
I took the oatmeal cookie recipe off until I get it straightened out. The cookies spread out too much and stick to the pan,even when it's been sprayed with cooking spray. I have to readjust the flour/liquid/baking powder ratio, and then I'll repost it.

I've been trying to make this recipe healthier, so I've been trying oatmeal flour instead of white flour, and different sugars.

The best new variation is raw sugar instead of white sugar,and 1 teaspoon cinnamon instead of the lemon extract. I still used the white flour for this variation though.
I'm still working on an oatmeal cookie recipe, but have to figure out the ratio of oatmeal flour/oatmeal/white flour.

RE: Cookies
These sound good, Nettie. I think I'd have to go with the cinnamon - I've never had any luck with lemon extract. It always ends up tasting chemical-y. I see that you have lemon juice as an alternate to the extract. Does it turn out lemony enough or do add zest as well?
