"A light, crispy but tender sugar cookie loaded with flavor. These cookies are especially requested at Christmas. They're easy and definitely a crowd-pleaser."

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Sift together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, oil, confectioners' sugar and white sugar until well blended. Stir in the eggs, vanilla and lemon extracts. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients until well blended. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto the cookie sheet. Flatten cookies to 1/8 inch thickness using the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Colored sugar may be used if you do not plan to frost cookies later.
  3. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are golden brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

These cookies are wonderful! I first tasted them 27 years ago (1976) when my my Grandma Grace made some for us. My (then 6 years old) daughter loved them so much that they became a family tradi...

Very light with a slight lemon flavor. I do not recommend this recipe for cookie cutters, the dough is to soft and airy. But otherwise very tasty, didn't use a frosting, just put some white su...

Excellent and easy. I made these omitting the lemon extract--delicious! I also used this recipe and included pecans and/or chocolate chips. With the pecans, my husband said they tasted like t...

Delicious cookies. I made the full recipe, but baked only half. The other half I flattened with the glass, then flash froze on wax paper lined cookie sheets. Then put in bags. Baked from fro...

Best sugar cookie recipe I've made. Instead of lemon extract, I squeezed one half of a lemon into the dough and added a tad more vanilla as other users have suggested. These really are great. ...
