Sugar Cookies with Orange Glaze

For the Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cake sugar
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ cup Pompeian Light Taste Olive Oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp almond extract
2-3 Tbsp unsweetened milk of choice
For the Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 Tbsp fresh orange juice
1/8 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly grease a baking sheet. In a large bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir to combine. Add Pompeian Light Taste Olive Oil, vanilla
extract and almond extract. Stir until a crumbly dough forms. Add 2 Tbsp milk of choice; stir until a soft dough ball forms, adding more milk if needed. Place the dough ball onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out the dough until it is ¼-inch thick. Using a circular object such as the lid of a jar, cut out cookies; place onto the baking sheet. Repeat until all the dough is used up. Bake for 8-10 minutes; do not overbake or they will be too crispy. Set aside to cool. In a small bowl, add powdered sugar, 2 Tbsp juice and salt. Stir until a thick glaze forms. Add more juice if needed to thin out the glaze or add more powdered sugar if needed to thicken it. When the cookies are cooled, glaze the cookies. Top with slices of orange or blood orange and a pinch of sugar!
