These crispy, tender, melt in your mouth, Amish Sugar Cookies are a delight, and so easy to make! Depending on the size you make them, this single batch of cookies can make anywhere from 5-9 dozen cookies. I like to use a small cookie scoop, and it makes about 110 cookies! And you can make that many cookies in less than 1 hour!

This dough doesn’t require chilling, which makes them quick and easy to make.

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup powdered (confectioners') sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  2. In a large bowl beat the butter and sugars. Add oil and beat until blended. Beat in the eggs just until well combined. Add vanilla.

  3. In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Mix into wet ingredients just until blended.

  4. Drop by small spoonfuls, or use a cookie scoop (I like to use a small cookie scoop) onto ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle with sugar sprinkles or vanilla sugar, if desired. Bake 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned on the edges. Remove to wire racks to cool.
