Round Sugar Cookies

About 10 years ago I was visiting one of my Grandmothers when she served the most delicious sugar cookies. They were just plain round cookies with large white sugar crystals on them and they were the exact cookie I had been looking for for years! I asked her what the secret was and she remarked that it was using oil in the recipe as well as butter and using powdered sugar. These don't work well for rolling out and cutting but are the most delicious, fast and easy 'round' sugar cookie.

Simple Sugar Cookies

1 c powdered sugar
1 c granulated sugar
1 c real butter, softened
1 c vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
4 c all-purpose flour
1 t cream of tartar
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda

Cream sugars with butter, vegetable oil, and eggs. Add vanilla. Blend dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture; mix well. Chill dough for 2 hours. Scoop dough into walnut sized balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Use a glass dipped in sugar to flatten each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 8-10 minutes until the edges are slightly golden.Print Friendly and PDF
