Supreme Sugar Cookies

These are a family traditional Christmas treat. I have never eaten a more decadent sugar cookie than these. If you read through the ingredients, you'll quickly see why they are super rich and super delicious.

Supreme Sugar Cookies (double batch):

2 cups real butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 cups powdered sugar
4 eggs
2 cups oil
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
2 tsp lemon peel
8 ½ cups flour

Cream butter, sugar, & powdered sugar. Add eggs & oil. Then add all the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Separate into 6 equal amounts and wrap each in foil. Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.

Roll out cookie dough using powdered sugar instead of flour. Cut with cookie cutters. Bake at 325 degrees for 10-13 minutes. Let cool completely. Frost with glaze: powdered sugar, milk (not a lot, use teaspoons) & food coloring. I always made pink & green cookies for Christmas then topped them with sprinkles.

These are the BEST! Everyone loved them over Christmas. All rolled-cookie recipies (ie for cookie cutters) I've ever tried are so flaky and hard/impossible to roll. These were almost the opposite (dough got soft and sticky really quickly) but is sure helped to use icing sugar instead of flour to keep thinks un-sticky. I think it's the lemon that makes these cookies outstanding! Thanks so much for sharing! Maria (Canada)
