This past weekend, I finally had a super successful batch! I made sugar cookies based on this recipe.
Start with a large bowl and add:
1 cup Butter (softened)
3/4 cup Vegetable Oil (or canola,or olive oil)
1 1/4 cup Sugar
3/4 cup Powdered Sugar
2 Tablespoon Water
2 Eggs (3 if they are small)
Whip together in your mixer or use a hand mixer. You want the mixture very smooth and creamy. It will be a little lighter than a peanut butter texture.
In a separate bowl, mix together:
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Cream of Tarter
1 teaspoon Salt
5 1/2 cup Flour
Slowly add the dry mixture to your butter mixture. Then use your hands to make dough balls and place them on your cookie sheet. Place the bottom of a glass into a bowl of sugar and press the dough balls flat (mine were about 1/4 inch tall after). They will crack at the edge, but they will cook up nicely!
Bake your cookies at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes (depending on your oven). You won't want them to brown, just make sure you get the middles cooked!
We ate them straight out of the oven and the middles were cakey, warm, and delicious!! Yummm. These were quick and easy, and it made about three dozen cookies. And they didn't fall FLAT!
