Hubby brings home a lot of various kinds of cheeses that were donated to his Agency. State law maintains that any food cannot be served past it's expiration date. Well to us, the expiration date is a "suggestion" and a lot of food is "still good".
One day he brings home a whole bag of "Blueberry Vanilla Goat Cheese", just look at them all!
So, off I go to Pinterest and search for recipes and found one for Goat Cheese Sugar Cookies. Well it's really "Blueberry Vanilla Goat Cheese Sugar Cookies" now, but that's too long....
Goat Cheese Sugar Cookies
Makes about 36 Cookies
2 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
1/3 Cup (3 oz.) Goat Cheese, room temperature
6 Tablespoons Butter, melted
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Large Egg
2 Tablespoons Milk
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (Since there was already Vanilla in the cheese, I halved this, if you're using regular goat cheese, use 1 teaspoon)
Nonpareil sprinkles or sanding sugar (optional)
Note the "f" and "s" on the containers, just a low vision trick I use to differentiate the flour and sugar.
Yeah, doesn't look appealing here.....but patience my grasshopper....
Hang in there, almost done....
There we are!!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use foil and spray nonstick on it.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside.
In mixer bowl combine the sugar, goat cheese and melted butter until smooth.
Mix in oil, milk, egg and vanilla extract until smooth.
Fold in flour mixture until no dry mixture remains.
(Optional Step) Pour Sprinkles or Sugar into a small bowl.
Dough should be soft but workable. Scoop out about a Tablespoon of dough, roll in the sprinkles/sugar and arrange on baking sheet with 2 inches of space between cookies.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until just set and slightly cracked.
Cool on baking sheet for about 3 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
