Amish Sugar Cookies


I am not generally much for a cake batter type cookie but I grew up on these and they are near and dear to me. So I’ll make an exception.

I use to make these at home growing up along with a cup of hot tea and dunk them in. OH yum, simple goodness.

So I had a hankerin’ for these yesterday and I whipped up a batch. They make a lot so be ready to share some with the neighborhood kids or have a tea party. I especially like these for little kids, I call them clean cookies because there is no chocolate so the kiddos don’t get as messy. Great snack for vehicle rides.

A little tip a good friend shared with me years ago is to always double the vanilla in a recipe. Consider this when making cookies or brownies and even muffins.

Amish Sugar Cookies

1-1/2 cup oil

1-1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs (farm fresh if possible) 🙂

4 cups flour

1 tsp. soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1 cup buttermilk (if you don’t have buttermilk add 1 Tablespoon of vinegar to your milk)

3/4 tsp. salt

3/4 tsp. vanilla

Mix all together and bake at 350 for 8 minutes. No longer. Let cool a bit and then transfer to your cookie platter.
