I couldn't get perfect swirls. But it was still good:)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup of vegetable oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract
2 cups of all-purpose flour
about 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
about 1/4 cup of red colored sugar
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix 3/4 cup sugar, the oil, baking powder, vanilla, salt, peppermint extract and eggs in large bowl with spoon. Stir in flour.
Drop dough by teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. (I use parchment paper) Press bottom of glass onto dough to grease, then dip into 1/4 cup of granulated sugar; press on balls until 1/4 inch thick. Spoon red sugar on cookies, using very small spoon, in spiral design to look like peppermint candies. Or place red sugar in resealable plastic food storage bag; snip off tiny corner. Squeeze red sugar from bag on cookies.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
