Another Internet recipe! These sugar cookies are good and fairly easy to make with a mixer. I like to make them for taking to college study night. They are still not quite as good as Alicia's recipe, but this recipe makes more at a time.
· 1 C Butter (room temperature)
· 3/4 C Vegetable Oil
· 1 1/4 C Sugar
· 3/4 C Powdered Sugar
· 2 T Water
· 2 Eggs
· 1/2 t Baking Soda
· 1/2 t Cream of Tarter
· 1 t Salt
· 5 1/2 C Flour (I needed 6 cups flour)
Cream together Butter, Vegetable Oil, Sugars, Water, and Eggs.
Combine dry ingredients and slowly add to butter mixture.
Mix until everything is combined. Your dough should be a little crumbly and not sticky at all.
Roll into golf-ball-size balls and place on cookie sheet. I used my silicon liners with no greasing.
Now it’s time to give these babies their signature rough edge. Put 1/4 c of sugar and a pinch of salt in a dish (this is in addition to the sugar and salt listed above.) Stick the bottom of a glass in it. This is going to be your cookie press.
Firmly press it into the center of your dough ball. You want your dough to spill out over the sides of the glass. If there is a lip it’s even better.
Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. They should just barely be browning on the bottom. Move cookies to a cooling rack. Once they are cool put them in the fridge.
