Recipe for Festive Texas Sugars


Sugar Cookies are a must for most holidays, but sometimes it difficult to find the time to roll them out and decorate them. Texas Sugars are an easier-than-rolled sugar cookie that has become a family favorite over the years. They are quick and easy, since the dough is rolled into balls, then sprinkles, and then baked. The flavor and texture of these cookies is great, and since they are colorful, they make any cookie tray look festive.
””
The name “Texas Sugars” comes from the fact that the original recipe for these cookies came from an old Texas community cookbook. The original recipe has been tweaked a little through the years, and they are the first cookies to disappear on buffets, especially when kids are present, since they love brightly colored sprinkles. Texas Sugars keep well in an airtight container, or freeze beautifully if you happen to find time to make them ahead.

1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup oil
2 eggs
