Prep Time: 15 Min.
Cook Time: 10 Min.
Chill Time: 30 Min.
What you need:
* 6 Tbsp. light olive oil * 1 c. sugar * 2 Tbsp. milk, 1% or nonfat * 1 tsp. vanilla * 1 large egg (or 2 egg whites) * 1 3/4 c. white whole wheat flour * 1 tsp. baking powder * 1/2 tsp. baking soda * 3/4 tsp. cinnamon * 1/2 tsp. nutmeg * 1/8 tsp. salt
What to do:
1. In a medium bowl, combine olive oil and sugar; beat until well-combined, about 1 min. 2. Add milk, vanilla and egg (or egg whites); blend well. 3. In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; gradually stir in liquid mixture and continue until well mixed. 4. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 30 min.-1 hr. for easier handling. 5. Heat oven to 375°F. 6. Shape dough into walnut-sized balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Press cookie ball with the bottom of a glass to flatten. Cookies will be about 1 1/2-in. in diameter and about 1/4-in. thick and do not spread much when baking. 7. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown.
* FYI: This cookie is the hard, crunchy type cookie that is good for dipping in milk, coffee, etc., not the "chewy" type.
