Ingredients

  • Cookies:

  • 5

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    cup granulated sugar

  • 5

    teaspoons baking powder

  • 1

    cup vegetable oil

  • 1

    cup milk

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1

    teaspoon lemon or almond extract

  • 2

    teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2

    eggs

  • Glaze:

  • 3

    cups sifted confectioners' sugar

  • 4

    tablespoons milk

  • Rainbow sprinkles and decorating sugar for topping (optional)

Directions

Cookies: Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, oil, milk, salt, extract, lemon juice and eggs. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on prepared baking sheets. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until cookies are set but not brown. Let sit 5 minutes then transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Glaze: In a medium bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and milk and stir until smooth. Dip tops of cooled cookies in glaze and place on wire rack. Sprinkle with toppings, if desired. Option: To decorate your cookies with multiple colors, separate glaze into smaller bowls and mix in food colors one drop at a time until reaching desired colors. Add a drop of your favorite extract to add flavor to your glaze, if desired.
