Ingredients

about 1/2 cup / 125 ml coarse sugar
2 tsp / 10 ml baking powder
2 1/4 cup / 550 ml all-purpose flour
4 tbsp / 60 ml Naturegg Simply Egg Whites, well shaken
1/2 tsp / 2 ml salt
2 tsp / 10 ml vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup / 375 ml granulated sugar
1 cup / 250 ml softened butter

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  2. Beat butter, sugar, vanilla and salt using an electric mixer until fluffy; add egg whites and beat just until smooth, scraping the bowl as needed. Blend flour with baking powder; add to mixer and beat on low until a thick dough forms.

  3. Roll 1 tbsp (15 ml) portions of dough into balls. Roll in sugar and place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets, spacing 3-inches (8 cm) apart. (Do not flatten, cookies will spread as they bake.)

  4. Bake, in batches, for 12 minutes or until golden around the edges. Cool completely on baking sheets.

Tips

  1. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.

  2. For a festive touch use coloured decorator's sugar. To make your own: place sugar in a ziptop bag, add a few drops of food colouring and massage bag until desired colour is reached.
