How To Make Swig Cookies
This sugar cookie recipe calls for 5 ½ cups flour! So I used my Bosch mixer, but a Kitchenaid or hand mixer would work, too. Just make sure to use a large bowl.
The trick is to mix the butter and sugars together for a few minutes until they are light in color and fluffy. Then add the cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt by sprinkling them even across the butter mixture. Add in eggs, vanilla, sour cream and mix again for a minute or two until fluffy.
Finally, add the flour into the dough mix until there are no wet streaks remaining. Overmixing the dough will create dry and crumbly cookies...not what you want.
The pressed sugar cookie recipe will save you time since no rolling out is required for these glass bottom cookie method.
Once the sugar cookie dough is ready, use a cookie scoop to scoop a ball of dough. Then take a cup, spray the bottom of it and dip it in granulated sugar. Press the cup onto the dough balls to smash the cookie down.
This will create the rugged cookie edges that are so popular at Twisted Sugar, Swig, and other soda pop cookies.
