Sugar Cookie Recipes

This is a recipe that I got from my mother over 40 years ago. She called them drop sugar cookies, so I renamed them this year. These are crispy cookies that melt in your mouth. Almost every time I take them to a potluck party, I am asked for the recipe.

Prep Time: about 30 minutes

Cook Time: 6-10 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: 5 or 6 dozen

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup margarine or butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Steps:

  1. Mix in order listed. incorporating each ingredient as you go. When thoroughly mixed, chill the dough for about an hour.
  2. Roll chilled dough into balls about the size of a walnut. Place on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.
  3. Flatten with a fork dipped in sugar. You can use colored sugar for this step. You may exchange the fork for another tool. In the original recipe, it called for the bottom of a glass since years ago the glasses had a pretty design. I choose to use my meat tenderizer hammer. See photo.
  4. Bake at 350º F for 6-10 minutes.
