My thighs and dimpled buns would like to give a big shout-out to Suzanne, who so happily informed me that today is National Sugar Cookie day. Of course I wanted honor this important holiday. To that end, I found the most delightful recipe to be had in all of sugar cookie-dom.
For all y’all out there that would like to help us celebrate, here is the recipe:
1 Cup butter, softened
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup confectioner’s sugar
1 Cup vegetable oil
4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp Vanilla extract
Cream butter and sugars together, then add the oil, and eggs one at a time. Blend well. Add dry ingredients and vanilla. Refridgerate overnight. Form into walnut sized balls, and place on a greased cookie sheet. Combine sugar and nutmeg. Dip bottom of a glass in sugar-nutmeg mixture, and press on each cookie ball to flatten. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes. Let cool on wire rack.
Hope you enjoy these! They are de.light.ful with a cold glass of milk, or a hot cup of coffee. I’m going to have to send that Suzanne a love note!
