Yields 30 – 40 cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
Line a baking tray with Gefen Parchment Paper.
With a mixer, beat oil, sugar, eggs, and rum extract.
Slowly beat in dry ingredients.
With your hands, shape approximately two teaspoons of dough into balls.
Sprinkle confectioners’ sugar on a plate. Roll each cookie in the sugar until coated, or as desired.
Place on cookie sheet or tray approximately one inch apart.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the cookies start to look cracked.
Let cookies cool fully before removing them from the baking tray.
Wet your hands with a few drops of water to help you roll the dough into even balls.
