Valentines Day Crisp Sugar Cookies!


                                                                          

These are a FUN & DELICIOUS cookie to use for all the different Holidays & Seasons. Decorate as the occasion requires. Red & Green for Christmas, Orange & Black for Halloween, Pink, Purple, and Yellow for Easter and Spring, you get the idea I'm sure ! These are a crisp & loaded with vanilla, sugar cookie. if you would like you could flavor these with lemon or almond or as the original recipe suggests & use cinnamon !

1 Cup Butter Softened
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 Cup Vegetable Oil 
2 Eggs
2 Tsp Vanilla
4&1/3 Cups Flour
1 TSP Salt
1 TSP Baking Soda
1 TSP Cream Of Tartar

To Decorate use any Sanding Sugars or Sprinkles that you choose!

In a large mixing bowl beat butter & granulated, and powdered sugars together. Beat in oil. Next beat in eggs & vanilla. Stir together in another bowl all the dry ingredients. Slowly add them to your creamed mixture beating well as you add. Do NOT chill dough. When you are ready to bake preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray baking sheets or lightly grease. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, place on your baking sheets then flatten with the bottom of a glass.  Sprinkle with sanding sugar or sprinkles, coat liberally. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Let cookies cool completely before storing!  This recipe is a variation of  Taste of Homes Cinnamon Sugar Cookies. In the original recipe they add 1 TSP. cinnamon & 1 cup chopped nuts. You may add them if you wish but I prefer the crisp sugar cookie as made like above. These are a SANDIE type cookie so for variation add pecans for those yummy Pecan Sandies ! Make 6 Dozen
