White Sugar Cookies


It’s the Christmas edition of the ‘White Food Club’.  This is such a nice basic recipe that I make it all year long.   The dough is very soft and the cookies bake up so tenderly.  If you take a bite and leave it on your tongue, it will slowly dissolve.  I love this recipe.

I use a cookie press to flatten the cookies.  These presses are the cutest things.  They come in many styles including holiday designs.  I used to have quite a few, but moving caused me to downsize.  If you don’t want a design, simply use the bottom of a glass or a fork in an ‘x’ pattern.

Super simple recipe.  You put the first 5 ingredients in your mixer bowl and cream them.  Add the next 5 ingredients and combine.  Done.  The dough is a little crumbly and super soft.  When you roll it into balls, the crumbly aspects disappear.

They don’t look fancy, but you will love having a dozen or 2 of these in your freezer at all times.  Remember when I was telling you about the cookie and coffee tours?  Well, these are wonderful with a cup of coffee.  Give me a call when the coffee is ready.






1 cup butter, softened

1 cup oil

1 cup sugar

1 cup powdered sugar

1 egg


3 teaspoons vanilla

5 cups flour

1 teaspoon each: baking soda, salt, cream of tarter

Stir until combined.

Form balls 1 inch in diameter, roll balls in sugar.  Flatten with cookie press.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.


* from the Recipe Box:

This is Aunty Kay’s recipe.  The cookies are so light they melt in your mouth.  I had quite a collection of cookie presses.  I think I used to make these cookies so I had an excuse to buy another cookie press.  A basic cookie and of course it’s white.

and remember:  Just in case no one told you today:  Good morning, you’re beautiful, I love you and your have a great butt.  Big kiss, Lynn
