Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: World’s Best Sugar Cookies

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me.  I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy.  It might be a main course recipe.  A cookie or baked item.  Candy.  Salads.  Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is WORLD’S BEST SUGAR COOKIES.

I had half a dozen variations of the sugar cookie recipe and threw them all out when I found this one. Yeah, lots of butter and oil but these are the most sinful, melt-in-your-mouth cookies. The recipe makes a LOT. Although, if you fall in love with these as much as I did, you might want to bake two batches!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s.

Happy eating!

[Makes LOTS]

Lightly spray cookie sheet with pan coating. Roll into small balls; dip bottom of glass into sugar granules (colored sugars can be used) and press out dough.  Bake at 350 degrees, 10-12 minutes. (NOTE: Can also use nuts or coconut instead of sugar.)

  1. YUM…sugar cookies are the best..frosted or unfrosted! Thanks for a new recipe to add to my collection. I have a really good one that I’ve used for years, but I’m always up to trying something new. 🙂

  2. Morning, Christine! You’ll love these. I don’t frost them because they’re melt-in-your-mouth delicate. Besides, it’s already sugary and sinful enough. Hope you enjoy!
