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

2 eggs

4 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tsp Vanilla extract

additional sugar


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!

  1. There you go FIBBING to your readers….I’ve seen how beautifully fit you are. I’d bet nothing on you is dimpled..

    Be prepared: July 11th is “Cheer Up the Lonely” day (we’re visiting a retirement center) and July 13th is National French Fry Day. And you don’t want to miss July 19th which is the MOST important “Stick out your Tongue” day…..
