This are whole wheat sugar cookies that my roommates love -- that's why I named them Room 157 sugar cookies!
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 1 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, mix the white sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. In a separate bowl, mix the whole wheat flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually mix the flour mixture into the sugar mixture. Roll into balls, and arrange 2 to 3 inches apart on cookie sheets.
Bake 9 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to wire racks.
