Amish Sugar cookies are a quick and easy cookie to make—and delicious for any occasion. These simple sugar cookies just get spooned onto the cookie sheet to bake, but for a fun—and patriotic twist—we are adding some strawberries and blueberries to make these red, white, and blue sugar cookies the perfect festive dessert for your 4th of July picnic!
What I love about Amish sugar cookies is that that they don’t need to be rolled out and cut-out… simply drop spoonfuls of the cookie mixture onto a cookie sheet and bake. Easy and tasty! These sugar cookies are patriotic, but I do love to use this recipe to make beautiful pastel cookies, which are perfect for any Spring time event… you can find those recipes here.
And speaking of celebrating the 4th of July… we have partnered with a few other bloggers to bring you the Light Up the Night Giveaway, where four lucky winners will walk away with $500 in cash! So don’t forget to scroll to the end and enter the giveaway!
Red, White, & Blue Patriotic Sugar Cookies
½ cup butter, room temperature
½ cup canola or vegetable oil
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup powdered sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon cream of tartar
Combine butter, oil, and sugars in a large mixing bowl; mix well. Add the egg and vanilla; mix until blended. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Add to creamed mixture.
Because we are doing the “Patriotic” cookie, add your blueberries and strawberries to the cookies. **Make sure to just add the fruit and not too much of the juice or else the cookies won’t bake properly.
Using a cookie scoop, to help keep all the cookies uniform in size, place mounds of cookie dough on baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
