“Sugar cookie with a delightful blend of flavors and crispy edges. The first time I tasted this cookie I just said "wow". It's my favorite cookie jar cookie and I highly recommended it. If you bake and ship to loved ones, this cookie travels very well even in summer heat. I use bubble wrap between layers and they survive the trip to Iraq.”
24 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Oven 350° for 12-15 minutes until edges are slightly brown.
  2. Cream fats and sugars until fluffy.
  3. Add egg and beat until absorbed.
  4. Add flavorings to creamed mixture.
  5. Sift dry ingredients together into separate bowl and blend together.
  6. Add dry to creamed mixture and mix just until flour is incorporated; do not over mix.
  7. Chill dough.
  8. Roll into balls and flatten on cookie sheet with glass bottom dipped in sugar.
  9. My addition of some butter allows the fats and sugars to crème to a fluffy consistency superior to Crisco alone. Butter has a small percentage of water that helps build volume and break down the sugars. The use of all butter will result in a softer cookie if this is your preference. This important 1st stage of preparation will make good cookies, blue ribbon winners.
