Goat Cheese Sugar Cookies

PHOTO & RECIPE: Momma Told Me

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 C unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 C sugar
  • 1/3 C (3 OZ) soft Montchevre goat cheese, room temperature
  • 6 tbls (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 C vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbls milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • nonpareil sprinkles or sanding sugar (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Combine sugar, goat cheese, + melted butter in a large bowl and whisk until mixture forms a smooth paste. Whisk in oil. Add egg, milk, + vanilla extract and stir until smooth. Fold in flour mixture until incorporated and no dry ingredients are left.
  4. Pour sprinkles or sugar into a small bowl. Dough will be soft, but should still be workable. Use a small cookie scoop to portion out about 1 tablespoon of dough, then roll in sprinkles/sugar to coat. If you have trouble with sprinkles sticking a damp cloth to moisten hands works great for rolled dough balls. Arrange on prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches of space between each cookie.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 mins, until cookies are just set and slightly cracked. Cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
