Best Christmas Sugar Cookies Ever!

One of the things we love about the Holidays are those recipes we get to relish and savor slowly.  My favorite is the COOKIES … the preparation, the decorating and definitely, the devouring!  I love to cook, and yes, I love to bake.  And, like most, we are always scouting for that one recipe that might top all the rest.  I thought my mother-in-law’s sugar cookie recipe was too the moon.

Sorry mom.  You know I worshipped and adored you.  I’m afraid though the Amish took it a step further and have captured my tastebuds forever.  The recipe I’m sharing below was originally found at Taste of Home .  My sincerest thanks to them.  It will yield about 5 dozen, dependent, of course, on how big you make these babies.  Bon Appétit my friends.  Please feel free to share and ALSO, I’d love to hear your feedback..  

Hugs from me to you this Holiday Season.


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar


  • In a large bowl, beat the butter, oil and sugars. Beat in eggs until well blended. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and cream of tartar; gradually add to creamed mixture.
  • Drop by small teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Don’t forget to check out my books at Amazon.  I’ve got some great titles and characters you’re sure to fall in love with.
