MY OLD FASHION SUGAR COOKIES

These are the best sugar cookie I have ever made. The first time (many years ago) I tasted one I couldn’t believe it was homemade…I have since that time made many, many batches of these cookies…The nice thing about them is you can make the cookie dough ahead of time and freeze it…Perfect for holiday baking…Just thaw & bake…They will melt in your mouth

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup powder sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup soft butter (real)
1 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tarter
4 cups flour
¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon almond extract

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cream sugars & butter
Add eggs & beat thoroughly
Beat in oil, vanilla & almond extract
Sift the dry ingredients together and add to cream mixture.
Chill overnight
Shape into 1” balls…Make sure they are no larger.
Dip top in sugar put on ungreased cookie sheet and press down with the bottom of a glass
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes

my cousin did videos from that portable santa sight and her kids were so excited. I might just have to go try that for my 7 year old. She would love it. Thanks for sharing
