Aunt Zana's Amish Sugar Cookies (Eggless)

I don't often blog recipes on here but I really had to share this with you. I Run a local Rainbow unit and tonight we are making Valentine cookies and somehow I had no eggs and with no time to go and buy any I did a quick search and found this online.


1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup powdered sugar

1 cup vegetable oil

1 cup butter, softened

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cream of tartar


1) Preheat oven to 375°F.

2) In a mixing bowl, cream together sugar, powdered sugar, oil, butter, and vanilla extract.

3) Add flour, baking soda and cream of tartar.

4) Mix well.

5) Take teaspoonfuls of dough & roll into balls.

6) Place on cookie sheet and press to about the size of a nickel.

7) Bake for 10-12 minutes.
The only problem I had was that as I wanted to cut out hearts it was sligtly sticky but I just added some more flour perfect and they taste delicous.

The girls will love covering with pink icing and sprinkles

Ok I burnt a couple so decided to ice this one.
I actually made vibrant pink icing for the girls

Would give this 10 /10 .
