World’s Best Sugar Cookies…..With Easter Colors

My Mom has been making these sugar cookies for years.  Buttery, light, and delicious.  Use any color sugar you like to top the cookies.  These make for very simple and festive cookies without a lot of fuss.  For these cookies, I simply used equal parts yellow and pink sugars.

World’s Best Sugar Cookies

 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup oil
5 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cream of tarter
½ cup sugar for pressing

 1)  Preheat oven to 375’.  Parchment line a cookie sheet, set aside.

2)  In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugars until fluffy.  Add the eggs and vanilla, beat well.  While the mixer is going, stream the oil into the butter mixture.  Beat until well blended.

3)  In a medium size bowl, add the flour through cream of tarter, whisk to blend. 

4) Add half of the flour mixture to the butter mixture, mix well.  Add the rest of the flour and mix until well blended.

5)  Portion out the cookie dough (about 1 tablespoon) right onto the cookie sheet using a cookie scoop.  Lightly grease the bottom of a glass, dip into the sugar and lightly press the cookie down.

6)  Bake for 11-12 minutes.  Cool completely and store in air tight bag or container.  Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.

*use colored sugar for different occasions.
