Christmas Sugar Cookies

Serves: 4

This is one of my most treasured recipes. It's a healthier (I know - it still has sugar!) Christmas sugar cookie with half the saturated fat than most. It's a soft dough and needs to be chilled before rolling. These are the perfect cookie to leave out for Santa!

Yield: about 4 dozen

Total Time:


1/3 cup butter at room temperature (i use unsalted)
1/3 cup vegetable or olive oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt


With an electric mixer on medium speed, combine the butter, oil, and sugar until smooth.

Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla.

On low speed add flour, baking powder, and salt.

Wrap dough in foil and chill for 1 hour to overnight or freeze for 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Divide dough in half. Roll each half 1/4-inch thick and cut out shapes. (re-roll scraps)

Lift cookies onto baking sheet, add sprinkles and bake for 9-12 minutes.
