Failsafe Recipes: Sweet things, biscuits, desserts

Sugar Cookies

2 and 1/3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1/2 cup safflower oil
2 tsp water
1½ cups sugar
extra sugar

Preheat oven to 350’F (180°C). In one mixing bowl mix together the flour, salt and baking soda. In a second bowl, mix eggs, oil, and water. Mix in sugar thoroughly with the wet ingredients. Using a fork, slowly mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Put spoonfuls of dough onto a cookie sheet and flatten with your hands to make a small circle. Sprinkle extra sugar liberally onto the tops of all cookies. Bake for 8 and a half to 9 minutes. If the cookies turn brown then you cooked them too long. And if there is a small dark circle in the middle of any cookie then you didn't cook them long enough. Be careful of not cooking them long enough especially if you make them big. (You run the risk of getting salmonella poisoning from the eggs if they aren't cooked enough.) Enjoy those cookies. - Matt (from failsafeUSA discussion group)
