Best Ever Sugar Cookies

11 Mar

This is my Grandma Kapke’s recipe.  They are a soft, chewy sugar cookie.  When I made them I baked them right away, without chilling the dough, and they turned out well.  Trevor had fun rolling them into balls and pressing red sugar on them.  Oh yeah, and eating them, too :0)


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup salad oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Cream butters, sugar and oil.  Add egg and vanilla.  Add sifted dry ingredients.

Chill overnight.  Roll dough into balls the size of small walnuts and arrange on a baking sheet.  Press down gently with bottom of glass dipped in sugar (we used red sugar!).

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes (or less).
