Sprinkles or other decorating materials (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. and grease a cookie sheet.
Mix egg, oil, vanilla and sugar in a bowl.
Add food coloring if using and mix well.
Add flour, baking powder, salt and mix well. Dough will be soft.
Make dough into balls, using about one tablespoon of dough per cookie. Place sugar in a small dish and dip the top of each ball into the sugar, then place on the cookie sheet, sugar side up, about 2″ apart.
Drop dough by tablespoons onto the cookie sheet. Wet the bottom of a glass and dip it in the sugar, then press each cookie so it’s about 1/4″ thick.
If preferred, decorate with sprinkles or anything else that can be baked.
Bake about 6 minutes. Do NOT overbake.
Remove from oven and let cookies sit for about 1 minute before removing to a plate or cooling rack. If making another sheet full, let cookie sheet cool before putting dough on it or the cookies will spread out too much.
When cool, if desired, cookies may be frosted or decorated further.
