Tonya Rigby


1 cup of Butter
3/4 cups Vegetable Oil
1 1/4 cups Sugar
3/4 cup Powdered Sugar
2 Tbsp Water
2 Eggs
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Cream of Tarter
1 teaspoon Salt
5 1/2 cups Flower

Sour Cream Frosting

1/2 cup room temp butter
3/4 cup Sour Cream
2 cups Powdered Sugar

1. Cream together Butter, Vegetable Oil, Sugars, Water, and Eggs.
2. Mix until everything is combined. Your dough should be a little crumbly and not sticky at all.
3. I use a small cookie scoop to place dough on cookie sheet
4. Now its time to give these babies their signature rough edge. Put l/4 c of sugar and a pinch of salt in a dish this is in addition to the sugar and salt listed above.) Stick the bottom of a glass in it. This is going to be your cookie press.
5. Firmly press it into the center of your dough ball. You want your dough to spill out over the sides of the glass. If there is a lip its even better.
6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 8 minutes. They shouldjust barely be browning on the bottom. Move cookies to a cooling rack. Once they are cool put them in the fridge.
7. Start by creaming together butter and sour cream and salt. Slowly add powdered sugar. When it gets so thick its not frosting like add a splash of milk. Alternate this process until your frosting is the desired consistency. Add 1
drop of red food coloring and whip on high for l minute.
8. Keep cookies in a sealed container until they are ready to serve. The magic of a Swig Sugar Cookie is that the cookies are cold and the frosting is room temperature. Frost right before serving (if you make them in advance and n_eed to refrigerate the frosting make sure you give it time to warm up before serving)
