This recipe has been in our family about 70 years. It is the best sugar cookie I've ever tasted! The cook time is 8 to 12 minutes depending on how chewy or crispy you like them.

How to Make Sugar Cookies


  • 1Preheat oven to 350
  • 2Throughly cream vegetable oil, butter and both sugars.
    Add vanilla and eggs.
  • 3Sift dry ingredients. Stir in and blend. (I use my stand mixer on low for 30 seconds, then on medium speed just until mixed together).
  • 4Roll a teaspoon of soft dough into a ball. Roll ball in granulated sugar. (I color or buy the sugar depending on the holiday or time of year).
  • 5Press down on a lightly greased cookie sheet with a glass tumbler (use the bottom greased with a little dough), then dip the tumbler in granulated sugar.
