Amish Sugar Cookies Recipe
Diabetic Friendly Recipe
These Amish Sugar Cookies are similar to tender little sugar cookies with the addition of your choice of lemon or almond flavoring.
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter or margerine, (1/2 stick)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg, (large)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon or almond flavoring
2 tablespoons water
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Place sugars, margarine and oil in a mixer bowl and mix at medium speed until creamy.
Add egg, vanilla, flavoring and water, and mix at medium speed for 30 seconds, scraping down the bowl before and after adding these ingredients.
Stir remaining ingredients together to blend well; add to creamy mixture and mix at medium speed to blend. Form dough into 24 balls using 1-tablespoon dough per ball. Place balls on cookie sheets that have been sprayed with pan spray or lined with aluminum foil.
Press balls down evenly to 1/2-inch with the back of a tablespoon dipped in water.
Bake at 375-degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, or until cookies are browned on the bottom and lightly browned around the edges. Remove cookies to a wire rack and cool to room temperature.
