We found this recipe on Taste of Home this week.
We baked them....
...and we devoured them!
They really do melt in your mouth.
When I try a recipe that my people love, I'm obliged to share.
*Hint* Do NOT over bake. In fact, we set the timer for much less. They are 'meltier' that way!
Amish Sugar Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
In a large bowl, beat the butter, oil and sugars. Beat in eggs until well blended. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and cream of tartar and gradually add to creamed mixture.
Drop by small teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 for *8-10* minutes or until lightly browned (they don't need to be browned!!). Remove to wire racks to cool.
Now, go, be a hero!
