My DD picked out this recipe for me to make years ago and it has become a family favorite. Mixed up, it looks like the dough will never cover a 15×10 pan, but keep at it and it will spread over it very nicely. An offset spreader will help quite a bit. Sometimes I cut them into bars, sometimes into triangles. They freeze really well.
Libby’s Super, Super Easy Sugar Cookies
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup oil
1 tablespoon milk
1-2 teaspoon almond extract or vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar (I use colored sugars)
Heat oven to 375º.
In large bowl, beat 3/4 cup sugar, butter, oil, milk, almond (or vanilla) extract and egg until light and fluffy. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt; blend well.
Spread evenly in ungreased 15×10 baking pan; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.
Bake at 375º for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Cut into squares or triangles.
Merry Christmas Baking!
