  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl except for the egg. 

  3. Crack the egg into a separate bowl and whisk with a fork. Set aside.

  4. If the dough is so wet that it is sticking to your fingers, knead in some extra flour, 1 tbsp. at a time until you have a soft dough that doesn't stick. (I used an extra 2 tbsp.) If it's too dry, add a little more oil.

  5. Roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with cookie cutters.

  6. Transfer cookies to a parchment lined cookie sheet.

  7. Brush cookie tops with egg wash. (you can use a whole egg or just the egg white. I used the whole egg but only used about 1/4 of the beaten egg for brushing on the cookies. No egg gets added to the dough. It's just for brushing on right before baking.)

  8. Bake for approximately 8-12 minutes, or until cookies have a nice, golden glow.
