June’s Sugar Cookie Blossoms

My grandma made the best Sugar Cookies. They were soft, moist, and made with love. She made them around the holidays, where I ate more than what my parents wanted me to. Let’s be real, most kids ride the sugar high from Thanksgiving till the New Years.

I took my grandma’s recipe, made some tweaks and Viola! Sugar Cookie Blossoms!  

Makes Approx 42 Cookies


½ C Sugar

½ C Powdered Sugar

½ C Butter

½ C Oil

1 Egg

1 Tsp Vanilla

2 ½ C Flour

½ Tsp Baking Soda

1/8 Tsp Salt

½ Tsp Cream of Tartar

1 package of Sugar Cookie Kisses

*Sugar to roll cookies in. Can use colored sugar for a festive touch!


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Unwrap Sugar Cookie Kisses, and place in a bowl.

Cream butter, sugar and powdered sugar together.

What is better than butter and sugar creamed together?

Add oil egg and vanilla to mixture, and mix until smooth.

This mixture smells so good with the vanilla!

Add dry ingredients (flour, Baking Soda, Salt and Cream of Tartar) and mix.

Roll 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough into balls and roll in sugar. To be festive, you can use colored sugar!                                                                                       

Used green colored sugar… because this is 2020 and let’s be festive!!!

Place on a baking sheet leaving a 1 inch gap between each cookie.

Bake for 8- 10 minutes or until set and slightly brown.

Remove and press Sugar Cookie Kiss in the center of the cookie.

Allow to set on the baking sheet for 3 minutes before removing. Cool on cookie racks.

BTW: River wanted to say hi, but fell asleep in front of the oven. I had to wake a sleepy Border Collie so that I could safely open the oven.
