I used a variety of sprinkles to clean out the cupboard of these half empty bottles. I used up about 5 bottles. But, the prolbem is later that day I was at the market and for 50 cents a bottle they were selling all the christmas and halloween sprinkles, you got it, I came home with 6 new bottle of sprinkles..........
I need to get these out of the freezer and in the mail to brother Dicka.
I am going to attempt to mail my brother these cookies. His favorite cookie is a sugar cookie. Hopefully, he will get these in two days....that they arrive in one piece or at least resemble a cookie, and edible. He can share with my niece, Crystal and Mike and the 3 little ones. Enjoy and happy Baking. Andi
Secret Ingredient Sugar Cookie
2 stick of salted butter, room temperature*
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package (3.4 ounce) package of instant vanilla pudding or lemon pudding
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
* if using unsalted butter add 3/4 tsp of salt to the batter.
|I finished off 5 bottles of sprinkles|
|Wrapped in plastic wrap then placed in the bags for mail service to brother Dicka|
In the bowl of your stand mixer, add the butter, oil and the sugars. Mix till light and fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla extract and the dry pudding mix and mix again.
In another bowl add the flour, cream of tartar and baking soda. Using your whisk, mix the dry ingredients well. Add this gradually to the stand mixer and mix.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your baking sheets with parchment paper. You can drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart on baking sheets, or roll in 1 1/4 inch balls and place on parchment paper or un-greased baking sheets and press down with your fingers then add the sprinkles.
I used my cookie scoop that holds 2 Tbsp of dough and then rolled the top and sides in the sprinkles and placed on the parchment paper baking sheets. I did not press the cookies down. They baked into the puffed up rounds and started to fall during the cooking process. They fell beautifully into round cookies.
Bake at 350 for about 12-15 minutes. Just watch them, when they are just starting to turn light brown on the edge remove from oven. Allow to stay on the cookie sheet for a little then remove to the cooling rack. This will make about 6-7 dozen cookies depending on the size of the dough ball.
