Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies with Strawberry Glaze Frosting

As you may already know based on previous posts, i’m a HUGE fan of chocolate desserts. (but would choose vanilla cake over chocolate any day – strange). My dad made these sugar cookies growing up and to this day i’m convinced it’s the reason i’m not 100 pounds. I liked these cookies but I enjoyed the raw dough so much more. I also didn’t enjoy the baked cookies themselves until I graduated college…believe it or not.

Seriously, I grew up waking up to the smell of fresh baked cookies at 5-6am. My dad was, and still is, an early riser and I got that from him as well. Once I smelled the baked goods, i’d climb down the stairs to help my dad with the dough (aka, eating the dough).

Anyways, I wish my dad would of had a lock on the freezer (he freezes his cookies because he makes SO many in advance for specific occasions or just to have on hand). Meanwhile, i’m still trying to work off the 25+ years of cookie dough inhalation.

  • 2 Sticks Butter softened
  • 1 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 cup Sugar + more for the dough balls
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 4 cups Flour all purpose
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Cream of Tartar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Spoonfuls Strawberry Spread/Jam Trader Joe's
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2.5-3 Tbsp Unsweetened Almond Milk
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients together and then the dry ingredients together in separate bowls.
  3. Slowly fold in the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients on low speed (or with spatula) until well incorporated.
  4. Roll the dough into a small balls and place in a bowl with sugar to coat one side.
  5. Place dough balls sugar side up on a baking sheet and use a glass to lightly press down (just a tad so they're in a flat circular shape but not too flat as they will automatically bake down).
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes (I like baking for about 10 to achieve a softer cookie).
  7. Remove and let cool.
  8. Meanwhile, mix the powdered sugar, almond milk, vanilla, and strawberry spread in a bowl.
  9. Once cool, drizzle frosting over cookies (optional).
