cookie yum yums

Since we didn't get to bake cookies on Christmas[we were out of town and I have this "thing" about cooking in other peoples kitchens] I thought it would be good to bake cookies this past Tuesday at 10 o'clock at night. Random? Not if you are me.

Black & white hot chocolate to wash the sugar cookies down!

*I found this recipe in my Betty Crocker.


makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup veggie oil
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 large eggs
4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour [don't use self-rising flour!]
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar

1. In large bowl, beat 1 cup granulated sugar, powdered sugar, butter, oil, milk, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed. Stir in flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm.

2. Heat oven to 350F.

3. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Place 1/2 cup granulated sugar in small bowl. Roll balls in sugar. On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls about 3 inches apart. Press bottom of drinking glass on each ball until about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle with a little more sugar.

4. Bake 13-15 minutes or until set and edges just begin to turn brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
