Blood Orange Sugar Cookies

  • 1 C. butter, softened
  • 1 C. Blood Orange Olive Oil
  • 1 C. granulated sugar
  • 1 C. powdered sugar
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 4 C. all-purpose flour
  • 1 t. cream of tartar

Sugar Mixture: In a small bowl, combine 1 T. granulated sugar and 2 T. natural cane flavored sugar. *Use raspberry or dark cocoa when you using the Blood Orange Olive Oil.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Thoroughly cream oil, butter and sugars. Add vanilla and eggs. Sift all dry ingredients together and stir into the mixture. Chill dough at least one hour (or keep refrigerated to use as needed). This is a soft dough. When ready to bake, roll 1 t. of dough into a ball for each cookie. (We used a small sized scoop). Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet (or lined with parchment). Dip the bottom of a small glass into the sugar mixture and gently press it down about halfway onto the ball of dough. Sprinkle generously with more of the flavored cane sugar. Bake for 12 minutes. Makes about 8 dozen. Cookies will be crisp and not chewy.
