How To Make Sugar Cookies (Swig Copycat)
These delicious sugar cookies are thick and rich and topped with a smooth sour cream frosting. Decorate with sprinkles for a more adorable treat.
Begin by creaming together butter, oil, sugars, water and eggs in a mixer. Mix for a few minutes until well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients and slowly add to butter mixture.
Mix all ingredients until they are well combined. Dough should not be sticky.
Roll dough into 1½ inch balls and place on a greased cookie sheet.
To give the cookies their cracked edges, place ¼ cup sugar and a pinch of salt in a separate bowl. Place the bottom of a glass into this mixture and then press it onto a ball of dough.
Press cookies until they are a bit wider than the glass bottom diameter and cook at 350 degrees F for 8 minutes.
Let cool and place in fridge.
For the frosting mix butter, sour cream, powdered sugar, salt, 1 drop food coloring and almond extract. Mix well and add the desired amount of milk.
Spread frosting on cookies right before serving.
