I saw this recipe at Places of My Heart a few weeks ago, and I immediately bookmarked it because it calls for on-hand ingredients and is super-easy to make. These sugar cookies are slightly different than traditional ones, having a shortbread-like taste. They are absolutely delicious!
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup Wesson oil (I used canola)
1 t. vanilla
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cream of tartar
3/4 cup sugar in separate bowl for coating dough
Beat sugars, butter, and oil with mixer. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until fluffy.
In a separate bowl, sift dry ingredients together, and add to sugar mixture. Blend well with mixer.
Next, you can either roll teaspoonfuls of dough into balls or simply spoon out a teaspoonful and roll in sugar. Place each dough portion onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for about 7 minutes at 375 degrees.
**Do not allow cookies to brown. (You will think you are under-baking, but trust me!) They will firm up after being removed from oven. This allows for soft, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookies!
Thanks, Karen, for sharing this recipe!
