1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup Vegetable Oil

3. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare to baking sheets lined with parchment paper or a SilPat.
4. Place entire mixer bowl in the refrigerator to chill for 20 minutes while oven preheats, then transfer batter to piping bag fitted with a star tip (or any tip you choose, just choose one that is mostly open, not a leaf style or tiny tip, or, you may opt to use a cookie scoop). Pipe cookies in about 2 inch circles onto prepared sheets. Bake for 11-14 minutes, or until cookies look done. Once cool, fill centers with cream cheese icing.
