Today I am sharing my favorite sugar cookie recipe with you. I have had the recipe for a long time, so some of you probably already have it. They are easy. It makes a lot and they are so good with a cup of tea on a cold winter’s day, or with a glass of milk.
Melt in Your Mouth Sugar Cookies
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup margarine or butter
1 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups plus 4 tbsp. all purpose flour
Cream together sugars, oil and butter, add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. (I use my electric mixer) Add dry ingredients. Refrigerate dough until firm, about an hour. Roll into balls and flatten with the bottom of a glass dipped in additional sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until brown at edges.
Stay warm and safe. Have a great week!
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
