Copycat Swig Sugar Cookies

Soda shops are all the rage here where I live.  There are many different ones but my favorite is Sodalicious because my two good friends started it and my daughter Courtney manages their original location and because truly it is the best soda shop, their customer service can’t be beat!  Swig is another one and this is the recipe for a knockoff of their cookies  although all the shops seem to have similar menu items with different names.  I’m not gonna lie, I love these cookies and these are pretty close to the ones you can find in the soda shops, I made mine a little too thin, I shouldn’t have pressed them as flat as I did but they were still soft and delicious!

cookies

1 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup oil

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1/4 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

5 1/2 cups flour

frosting

1/2 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup sour cream

2 pounds powdered sugar

red food coloring

1  For the cookies, preheat oven to 350.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

2  Cream together butter, oil and sugar then add eggs, sour cream, extracts and mix until well combined.  Add dry ingredients a cup at a time and mix until soft dough forms.

3  Roll or scoop dough into golf ball size balls and place on cookie sheets, 6 to a sheet.  Dip the bottom of a drinking glass in sugar and press balls into circles about 1/2″ thick.

4  Bake 8 – 10 minutes, do not let cookies get brown at all.  Allow to cool on sheets for 5 minutes before removing to cooling racks.

5  For the frosting, whip butter until light and fluffy.  Add sour cream and just a drop or two of red food coloring and mix well then gradually add powdered sugar, a cup at a time.  Frosting should be stiff.
