"How to make easy sugar cookies"

Serves 36 | Prep Time 15 mins | Cook Time 1 hour 9 mins

Why I Love This Recipe

It's very good tasting and it's easy to prep and make

Ingredients You'll Need

2 ounces 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened

¼ cup unsalted butter, softened

¼ cup canola oil

1 cup sugar, divided

1 tablespoon 2% reduced-fat milk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 large egg

7.9 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 3/4 cups)

¾ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon kosher salt

Cooking spray


Place first 3 ingredients (through oil) and 2/3 cup sugar in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add milk, vanilla, and egg. Beat until blended.

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to sugar mixture, beating until well blended. Cover and chill 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Place 1/3 cup sugar in a small bowl. Shape dough into 36 (1-inch) balls. Roll balls in sugar, and place 1 1/2 inches apart on large baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Flatten cookies slightly with bottom of a glass.

Bake at 350° for 9 minutes or until set in center. Cool on pan 2 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on a wire rack.
