This is my delicious version of a traditional butter cookie. The butter flavor extract adds the butter flavor without all of the fat.
Makes 8 servings(3 cookies each serving)¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ cup reduced-calorie margarine
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons butter flavor extract
Preheat oven to 375°. Gather your ingredients and have a nonstick baking sheet ready.
In a small bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Mix well.
Add remaining ingredients and blend well with a fork to form a dough.
Work dough into a ball with your hands. Divide dough into 24 pieces and roll each into a ball.
Place on baking sheet. Flatten each cookie to ¼-inch, using the bottom of a glass.
Decorate with colored sugar, if desired. Bake 10 minutes, until bottoms of cookies are lightly browned.
Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool.
