Sugar, Sugar.

I’m back to the mixer this weekend making sugar cookies for an upcoming bachelorette trip, but I thought I’d share this simple sugar cookies recipe that doesn’t require a rolling pin or cookie cutter. They are a little sandy in texture, but fluffy and delicious! They would be fantastic with a little lemon zest.

Amish Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter softened

1 cup vegetable oil

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup powdered sugar

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

In a stand mixer, beat together butter, sugar, and oil. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add in the baking soda and cream of tartar. Gradually add flour to the butter mixture, beating until just combined after each addition. Do not overmix. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Drop dough by small teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-11 minutes, or until edges and bottoms are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
