Chewy Sugar Cookies (America's Test Kitchen)

There are a lot of things about this sugar cookie recipe that I like. For one, it's all mixed by hand and that's easily done with melted, warm, butter. The "secret" ingredient is cream cheese and a little bit of vegetable oil. The cookies truly are chewy in the middle and a little crunchy on the outside. I'll have to double them, next time, as the men in my family devoured these in one day!


cups (11¼ ounces) unbleached all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon table salt
cups (10½ ounces) sugar, plus ⅓ cup for rolling
2 ounces cream cheese, cut into 8 pieces
6 tablespoons (¾ stick) unsalted butter, melted and still warm
cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 tablespoon milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
