Best EVER Sugar Cookies!!!!!
Because I am sure that it is not public knowledge that I like to bake, I feel as though I am doing a huge disservice by not sharing the news…….I like to bake, wait let me rephrase that I LOVE to bake. I use to bake for the entire town of Tulsa until the cost just got too much for me. You may think I am kidding, but my friends I am here to tell you I am not. I baked for all my gym friends, I baked for my church groups, I baked for my co-workers, I baked and was not happy with the outcome so I wanted to give my baked goods to my homeless neighbors but was advised not to, probably wise! I love to bake and anyone within a 50 mile radius of Tulsa has probably been given a slice of sweetness from my kitchen. Because I have a sweet tooth the size of Texas I hunt high and low for scrumptious bites of heaven and I am certain I could hear angles sing when I took a taste of my new favorite sugar cookies.
Here is what you will need:
• 2 whole Large Eggs
• 1 cup Canola Oil
• 2 sticks Butter, Softened
• 1 cup Sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
• 1 cup Powdered Sugar
• 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
• 4 cups Plus 2 Tablespoons, All-purpose Flour
• 1 teaspoon Salt
• 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
• 1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together eggs, oil, butter, sugars and vanilla.
Add dry ingredients and mix and blended well. Cover and refrigerate dough for at least one hour.
Using a cooking scoop, drop balls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Smear a dab of butter all over the bottom of a glass, and then dip the glass in granulated sugar. Use the glass bottom to flatten each ball of dough, dipping again into the sugar before flatten each ball. Repeat until all are flattened.
Bake for 9-11 minutes, until cookies are just barely turning brown.
Be prepared these little delights are going to knock your socks off!!!
