Peppermint Candy Cookies
cup granulated sugar
cup vegetable oil
teaspoons baking powder
teaspoon peppermint extract
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
About 1/4 cup granulated sugar
About 1/4 cup red colored sugar
Heat oven to 400ºF. In large bowl, mix 3/4 cup sugar, the oil, baking powder, vanilla, salt, peppermint extract and eggs with spoon. Stir in flour.
Drop dough by teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Press bottom of glass onto dough to grease, then dip into 1/4 cup granulated sugar; press on balls until 1/4 inch thick. Spoon red sugar on cookies, using very small spoon, in spiral design to look like peppermint candies. Or place red sugar in resealable food-storage plastic bag; snip off tiny corner. Squeeze red sugar from bag onto cookies.
Bake cookies 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
For gift giving, wrap cookies in clear wrap, twisting ends to look like candies.
