These cookies are featured in my 2nd on camera baking video on YouTube. I wanted to thank two coworkers for having me on their podcast (search “the outsider podcast” on iTunes or soundcloud to hear the interview). They both like sugar cookies, so voila – Swig sugar cookies!
1/2 cup butter (softened), 1/4 cup +1/8 cup oil, 1/2 cup + 1/8 cup sugar, 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup powdered sugar, 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 1/2 tsp water, 2 3/4 cups flour, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp cream of tartar.
Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter, oil and sugars. Add egg, water and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. Scoop out 3 tbs dough. Roll into ball. Place on cookie sheet, lined with non stick baking sheet. Spray bottom of a drinking glass with Pam and dip in sugar. Lightly flatten cookie. Repeat scoop, roll, pam and sugar dip process for remaining dough. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool. Leave plain or frost if desired. Store in covered container.
