"This is a family favorite sugar cookie recipe handed down to me from my mom. When my husband was deployed to Iraq, he was always excited to receive a box of these in the mail. I always make sure to watch these closely and take them out of the oven before they brown. If they brown, they will end up too hard and crunchy."

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Beat 2 cups sugar, butter, and vegetable oil with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add egg yolks one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Sift flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt into the egg yolk mixture; stir. Stir in vanilla extract. Roll the dough into walnut-sized balls.
  3. Spread 1/4 cup sugar onto a flat surface. Roll the balls of dough in sugar to coat. Arrange onto baking sheets spaced at least 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake in preheated oven cooked in the middle, but not yet browned, about 15 minutes.

If it wasn't for the fact that I'm this recipe's first reviewer it would suffice to simply say, "Mmmmm," and add that Hubs remarked that this was "A five" - virtually unheard of. So I'll expand...

I was looking for a cookie recipe that only used egg yolks after making meringue cookies. The texture was quite nice. I found it a bit oily and a bit too sweet. I would suggest cutting the oil b...

Great comfort cookie...especially tasty while still warm!

I thought this was an excellent recipe! It is super sweet and my kids absolutely loved it! If you are careful not to over bake them, they are tender and chewy. So happy this recipe worked for...

These turned out great! Chewy and sweet enough they don't need icing if you don't want to. I added more vanilla than the recipe called for and will definitely make again.

This was a great cookie! I had some dehydrated cranberries sitting around, and by adding some to the batter, the tartness of the cranberries helped douse the sweetness of the cookie. I will defi...

Very delicious! I have made them for 2 events and they turned out great each time. If I were to change one thing though, it would be to take them out of the oven just 1 or 2 minutes earlier, but...
