The best sugar cookies no rolling out or cutting required! 


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup canola oil (or neutral flavored oil)
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar 
  • 3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • granulated sugar for pressing the cookies


  • 3/4 cups butter, softened
  • 2 Tbsp. sour cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. cream or milk
  • 6 cups powdered sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line large baking sheets with parchment paper or spray.
  2. In a stand mixer or large bowl, cream the butter, oil, white sugar and powered sugar together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. 
  3. Sprinkle salt, cream of tartar, and baking soda evenly across mixture. Mix. Then add eggs, sour cream, vanilla and stir another 1-2 minutes. 
  4. Finally add the white flour and mix until no wet streaks remain. Do not overmix. 
  5. Use a large cookie scoop (about 3 Tbsp. in size) to scoop out dough. Place on cookie sheet (*aff. link)  . Spray the bottom of a glass cup with cooking spray and then dip into a bowl of granulated sugar. Then press down on the cookie dough ball you just placed on cookie sheet (*aff. link)   making the cookie about 1/2 inch thick. Repeat until the tray is full. 
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes. I bake for 10 minutes and take them out before the edges start to turn brown. The trick is soft cookies, so don't overbake. 
  7. Let the cookies sit on the tray for a few minutes and then move them to a cookie rack to cool completely. 

To make the frosting: 

  1. Cream the butter, sour cream, cream or milk and vanilla until light and fluffy. Slowly add the powdered sugar and mix until a thick frosting forms. Add more milk or cream until the frosting is thick but spreadable. 
  2. Frost each cookie generously and then add sprinkles. 


  • You can freeze the formed cookie dough before baking or freeze the completed cookies. Let thaw to room temperature to enjoy.
  • Try these cookies chilled...they are so good!
