Chewy Sugar Cookies

Submitted by Pollie Gibson


  • 1 ¼ C sugar
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 6 Tbsp melted butter
  • ⅓ C vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 ¼ C all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Additional ½ C sugar for rolling


Preheat oven to 350°. 

In a large bowl, add sugar, cream cheese and melted butter. Beat with hand mixer until light and fluffy (about 3–4 minutes). Add oil, egg, milk and vanilla. Mix again just until combined. 

Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix until the cookie dough comes together. 

Scoop out tablespoon-size balls with a cookie scoop and roll entirely in sugar. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper or Silpat mat. 

Bake 16 minutes. Remove from oven, cool and enjoy. Makes 24 cookies. 

For lemon cookies, add zest from 1 lemon; substitute 2 tsp lemon extract for vanilla and 1 Tbsp lemon juice for milk.
