Sugar Cookies Recipe @pinch

We love sugar cookies because they can be served year haveround. They made a sweet addition to a holiday cookie tray but can be decorated for any season. The cookies are crisp and melt in your mouth. We opted to sprinkle them with colored sugar here that adds a little crunch and color. This is a family favorite. These cookies are always a hit whenever I bake them for family or friends.

Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Cookies Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 1 cup(s) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup(s) confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup(s) sugar
  • 1 cup(s) vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 - eggs
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla (use 1/2 tsp if using real vanilla)
  • 4 1/2 cup(s) sifted self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cream of tartar
Intructions :
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine butter (let the butter get very soft for best results), sugars (sift sugars together), and oil in a large mixer bowl using medium speed. Beat in eggs and vanilla
  • Sift flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar together. Gradually beat into creamed mixture using low speed. Mix well
  • Shape tablespoons of dough into balls (dough will be soft). Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with tines of a fork that have been dipped in sugar. (You can sprinkle a little more sugar on top if desired.)
  • Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove cookies; cool on racks
  • Store in a covered container. Note: The original recipe calls for margarine and vanilla extract. It also calls for all-purpose flour. I use self-rising flour. I have found the taste is better using unsalted butter and real vanilla.
