Serves: 24
  • 1 stick butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1½ tsp pure vanilla extra
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Sprinkles or caster sugar
  1. In the bowl of a standup mixer, beat the butter, oil, and two sugars until well blended and fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt and mix it in. Form the dough into a large ball. It will be quite soft. You may need to add additional flour, but don't overdo it. Just chill it for an hour first and then check it.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Divide the dough into 2 large balls. On a floured board, roll out the dough until it is about ⅛" thick. Using cookie cutters, cut the dough into shapes and transfer them, using a spatula to help, to a non-stick cookie sheet. Scatter sprinkles on top. Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until starting to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a couple of minutes before carefully transferring them to rack for further cooling.
