1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup organic powdered sugar for coating*

  4. Add dry ingredients to mixing bowl with wet ingredients until smooth and combined.
  5. Cover dough and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  6. Scoop dough with cookie scooper or tablespoon and roll into a ball (dough will be sticky and soft) and roll generously into powdered sugar.

*If you are trying to avoid sugar, you can make your own powdered sugar by combining 1/2 cup coconut sugar with 1 1/2 teaspoons arrowroot flour/starch in a coffee grinder until its a powder.
