Sunset NOVEMBER 2003

  • Yield: Makes about 36 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

1. In a large bowl, with a mixer on medium speed, beat butter, granulated sugar, and powdered sugar until smooth. Add oil, egg, and vanilla and beat until well blended.

2. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt. Stir into butter mixture, then beat until well blended. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and freeze until dough is firm, about 1 hour.

3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place about 2 inches apart on buttered or cooking parchment-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets. Flatten each cookie slightly with a floured fork.

4. Bake cookies in a 350° oven until edges are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking. Let cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then use a wide spatula to transfer to racks to cool completely.
