Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

I love sugar cookies. The round kind, not the cookie cutter type. The kind that are large and gooey in the center. Anyone have a tried and true recipe I can try?

Jodi-

Oh shoot, I typed receipt instead of recipe. Guess you can't fix titles in edit mode.

Sorry, my sugar cookie recipes are all the cut-out type. Just wanted to say that some places in the south, receipt is perfectly acceptable for recipe.

These are my Dad's favorite. Have been since before he and Mom got married almost 55 years ago.

Patti, I'm from the Midwest and my Mom always called a recipe a 'receipt'.

RE: Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I will try one or more of them soon. I particularly like the sour cream one.

RE: Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

Ok, these don't exactly fit your specs but they are the absolute best sugar cookies - ever!

I got this recipe from my Aunt. I just recently learned from her Granddaughter that this was just a regular sugar cookie recipe but times were tough and these cookies made the dough go a long way. Turns out it also made the best cookies.

Mary Alice's Sugar Cookies
1/2 lb margarine
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp butter flavoring
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups all purpose flour

Cream margarine & sugar together. Mix in remaining ingredients. Roll dough into cherry sized balls. Dip a flat bottom, well greased glass into sugar and press dough until very, very thin. Bake 350� until lightly brown on edges.

RE: Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

Lindy, what is butter flavoring?


 o
RE: Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

Jodi, you buy butter flavoring in the store right next to the vanilla. At least you used to. I guess they still make it.


 o
RE: Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

Would butter favored PAM work? I just bought some last week. 'Course it might take some doing to spray fill a couple teaspoons. :-)

RE: Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

No, Jodi. It's not greasy like that. If you don't have the flavoring just leave it out. It just enhances the butter flavor.


 o
RE: Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

I need to go shopping anyhow...and I love extra butter (unfortunately) so the butter flavoring sounds right up my alley. Thanks!

RE: Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

Curious could you roll out the cookies, not real thin, then add a small amount of jelly in the middle? I have had something like that and it is so good!

RE: Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

4 cups flour
2 eggs or 4 egg yolks
??? sugar

1 large tsp baking powder
1 tsp soda (baking soda I assume)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp nutmeg
??? cup shortening

Thank, Jodi-

RE: Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

Jodi you have mail. I hope I saw my email in time. I'll repost.

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

4 c flour
2 eggs or 4 egg yolks
1 1/2 c sugar
sour cream
1 large tsp baking powder
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp nutmeg
3/4 c shortening

Sift all dry ingredients together at 1 time. Work in shortening as for pie crust. In a large measuring cup add 2 eggs plus enough sour cream to equal 1 cup. Add 1 tsp soda to the egg mixture. Add 1 tsp vanilla. Mix. Roll out and bake @ 400� until slightly light golden brown around the edges.

Makes about 3 dozen

I use a 2 cup measuring cup to measure the eggs, sour cream and soda. I usually slightly beat the eggs before adding the rest.

If someone will remind me, I will type out the other two recipes I posted before tomorrow. I'm to tired to do it tonight.

Tami PS, it won't let me post it in a nice format, it jumbles it all up. Sorry

lindyluwho, do you mean Molly McButter for the butter flavoring?


 o
RE: Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

Lindalou, I'm not lindyluwho, but no, Molly McButter is not what she means by butter flavoring. You can find butter flavoring in the baking isle with the vanilla. It comes in a bottle in a box, just like the vanilla does. Just like vanilla, almond, black walnut, ect., like an extract, but it's just a flavoring, to make the cookies or what ever you use it in, have more of a butter flavor.

I said last night I would repost the other recipes I posted that have scrambled ingredient amounts so here you go:

Mrs. Hartly's Sugar Cookies

1 c. sugar
1/2 c. shortening
2 eggs
2 T milk
2 c flour
1/2 t. lemon rind (I use dried lemon peel found in the spice isle)
1/2 t. soda
1 t. baking powder
1 t. nutmeg
Little salt

Drop by teaspoonfuls on greased sheet. Bake at 350� until slightly golden brown.

My Mother's Sugar Cut Out Cookies

Combine:
3/4 c. soft shortening - part butter
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1/2 t. vanilla

Sift together:
2 1/2 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1 small t salt

Mix all together and chill at least 1 hour, or over night. Roll out 1/8" thick. Cut out with floured cutter. Place on ungreased sheet. 375� for 6-8 minutes. Not many in a single batch.

The reason we get the odd symbols, to my understanding, is the format of the forum doesn't understand the symbols when you copy and paste from Word.

Lindalou, what Tami said.

RE: Show me your best sugar cookie receipt

maddielee - I have to smile re your "Gloria's Cookies". I've had that recipe and my Mother years before me known as "Angie's Cookies". Guess recipes often get named for who you get them from.

My recipe is written as half yours - and it still makes a mighty lot of cookies. Mine says to roll in @ quarter sized balls and flatten with the sugar dipped glass bottom. With the butter and the oil, your palms might get a little greasy, but the cookies are uniform... and sooo good with a cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa.
