VINEGAR SUGAR COOKIES

I would never turn down a good cookie
Sugar cookies are one of my favorites
I saw these cookies and the ingredient list called out to me..........make me!
So that is what I did, Vinegar in cookies......never heard of such a thing.....no eggs either

Guess what they are very good, and you don't taste the vinegar.  When I make a pie the recipe that my mother used and I use every time is Vinegar Pie Crust............the best flaky pie crust

Here are the cookies




I found this recipe at purposelyfrugal Vinegar Sugar Cookies , the recipe says you get 3 1/2 dozen cookies.......Not in my house!  I want a good size cookie not a tea cookie.......... I got 2 dozen cookies. Next time I make them I will double the recipe     

Vinegar Sugar Cookies

1 cup of soft butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon white vinegar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
colored sugars

In large bowl add the softened butter and mix till light and fluffy with the sugar, add the vinegar and vanilla extract, in another bowl add the flour and whisk in the baking soda, then add this flour mixture to the butter mixture.  Place the cookies about 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet.  Using a cookie scoop or a tablespoon roll the dough in balls then flatten to 1/4 inch thickness, add the sprinkles on top and bake for about 8-10 minutes until light brown on the edges.  Bake at 350 degrees. Allow to cool for about 1 minute before removing to a cooling rack.  



Enjoy

  1. Imagine that, sugar cookies with vinegar and no eggs! These look wonderful, and I do make pie crust with vinegar just like my mother did, so I do believe it could work for cookies too. Keep up the great baking, Andi!
