  1. Preheat oven to 375°F
  2. WIth a hand-held mixer, blend first four ingredients together in a large mixing bowl until creamy, 1-2 minutes.
  3. In another mixing bowl, sift together the remaining ingredients except turbinado sugar. Add to the wet mixture, blending slowly until just incorporated.
  4. The dough should be very slightly sticky, but not so sticky that if you touch it sticks your finger. You should be able to roll it in your hands without it sticking to your palms. If it is too sticky, add that 1 – 2 tablespoons extra flour and mix again.
  5. Roll dough into 1/2 inch balls, then roll balls in turbinado sugarto coat. Bake on a parchment or foil covered cookie sheet for 9-11 minutes.
