Granny’s Sugar Cookies

My son Andrew loves his Granny’s Sugar Cookies.  Just made them recently for an event at school.  They are always a big hit!

Granny's Sugar Cookies


1 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 cup powdered sugar

1 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs, beaten

1 tsp. vanilla

Cream the ingredients above.

Mix in just until combined:

5 cups flour

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cream of tarter

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Preheat oven to 375°, on ungreased cookie sheet (I like to line mine with super parchment) placed 1.5″ dough balls spaced 2 inches apart.  Moisten the bottom of a glass and dip into sugar, press to flatten the cookie dough.

Bake for 10 minutes until edges just start to brown.  Remove to a rack to cool.  Enjoy!
