Another stellar recipe from
The Sister’s Cafe – these cookies are delicious!
A yummy alternative to traditional sugar cookies, these are easier because you don’t have to roll out the dough and cut out with cookie cutters.
You simply roll into balls and flatten with a glass and sugar.
The texture is soft and melts in your mouth.
These are fantastic with or without frosting. Yum!
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup sugar
1 cup oil
1 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
5 cups flour
1 tsp cream of tarter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2-2 ½ cups powdered sugar
½ cup oil
2 tsp flavoring (almond, vanilla, coconut, etc.) – I used coconut flavoring and it was delicious
3-4 Tbsp milk
Coloring if wanted
Mix all ingredients well. Roll into golf size balls and place on cookie sheets. Flatten with bottom of glass dipped in sugar. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes. Cool and frost with sugar gem frosting. For the frosting, mix well and add a little more milk or powdered sugar to get the right consistency.
