Coconut Oil Sugar Cookies

Rated as 4.86 out of 5 Stars

"This is a variation on the sugar cookie using coconut oil. It tastes similar to a shortbread cookie, but they are very moist and delicious. Roll tops of cookies in sugar and/or colored sugar before baking for a festive treat. Cinnamon and sugar works well, too."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet lightly.
  2. Beat sugar, butter, and coconut oil together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking powder, and baking soda gradually; mix until dough just comes together. Mix dough with hands to fully incorporate ingredients. Roll dough into walnut-size balls and place 2 inches apart onto baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cookie tops are cracked, 10 to 12 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Parchment paper can be used in place of greasing the baking sheet, if desired.
  • Tip
  • Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.
