Yield about 7 dozen


  • 2 cups butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 8 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 egg yolk, beaten

How to Make It

  1. Cream butter in a large mixing bowl. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add 6 eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

  2. Combine 3 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon in a medium mixing bowl; add to creamed mixture, stirring well. Add olive oil, mixing well. Add remaining flour, and stir until well blended.

  3. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls, and place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Lightly brush tops of cookies with beaten egg yolk. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Cool slightly on cookie sheets; remove to a wire rack, and cool completely.
