These are the BEST EVER sugar cookies! The ONLY sugar cookie recipe you will ever need...


1 Cup butter
1 Cup oil
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup powdered sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
4 Cups & 4 Tb flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt

   Cream butter & oil with powdered & regular sugars. Add eggs, vanilla, salt, flour, baking soda, & cream of tartar. Mix well -- chill 4 hours.
Roll into balls the size of walnuts. Press with a sugared fork.
Bake 350* for about 10-12 minutes.
Makes a ton.

   You can use this basic recipe & add nuts, chocolate or whatever you like. Also good for Christmas cookie cutters & sprinkles, this is the one I used with my kids growing up.


  1. These sound delicious but fun too. The best part of cookie making is the cookie cutter part at least for me! I attempted to make ginger bread cookies and ended up with the cake for Christmas instead but I will try these next time..come to think of it they will make great cookies for valentines too.

  2. These are good for ANYtime! :) Don't forget the sprinkles! YUM! Cake is good too!
