Grandpa Bud's Sugar Cookies

Comment on this recipe

These sugar cookies were my husband Bud's most favorite ones. I thought he would have liked for me to send the recipe in to share with other sugar cookie lovers. He passed away very recently.

Ingredients

3-1/4 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
2 teaspoons lemon extract
Granulated sugar

Instructions

Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a small mixing bowl; set aside. Cream margarine, sugar and confectioners' sugar in large mixing bowl. Blend in oil, eggs, lemon peel and lemon extract. Stir in the flour mixture. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2-3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with the bottom of a drinking glass dipped in granulated sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until edges are a golden brown. Remove right away and cool on a wire rack.
