QUICK LITTTLE COOKIES THAT ARE EASILY MEMORIZED

Ingredients

1 CUP SOFTENED BUTTER(or 1/2 oil)
1/4 C POWDERED SUGAR
1/4 C GRANULATED SUGAR
2 CUPS FLOUR
1/8 TSP BAKING POWDER

Directions

PREHEAT OVEN TO 325 F
BLEND INGREDIENTS WELL.
SHAPE INTO 1 INCH BALLS AND FLATTEN SLIGHTLY BETWEEN PALMS. IF DOUGH CRACKS JUST SMOOTH IT OVER.
BAKE FOR 20 TO 25 MINS.
DO NOT LET EDGES BROWN. I LIKE TO TOSS THE COKIES IN A BAG OF POWDERED SUGAR ONCE THEY'VE COOLED.
VARIATIONS:
ADD 1/4 TSP OF YOUR FAVORITE FLAVORING FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
IF YOU WANT SOFTER COOKIES USE 1/2 OIL AND HALF BUTTER, THE COOKIES MAY NEED TO BE REFRIGERATED 30 MINUTES IF DOUGH IS TOO SOFT.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
