Vanilla Bean Sugar Cookies

Vanilla Bean Sugar Cookies


  • 2 cups flour,

  • ¾ tsp baking powder,

  • ½ tsp baking soda,

  • ½ tsp salt,

  • ½ cup butter softened,

  • 1 cup powdered sugar,

  • 1 large egg,

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil,

  • 1 Tbsp Tribal Vanilla paste,

  • ½ cup granulated sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF (177ºC). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.

  • In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  • In a large bowl with a handheld mixer, cream the butter and powdered sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.

  • Stop the mixer, add the egg, vegetable oil, and vanilla paste, then beat again on medium speed until everything is combined

  • Reduce the mixer speed to low, then add the dry ingredients until just combined. Dough should be soft but not very sticky, and you should be able to scoop it with a cookie scoop without issue.

  • Place the granulated sugar into a small bowl, drop balls of dough into the sugar and use your fingers to gently roll the ball in the sugar. When dough ball is completely covered in sugar, place on prepared baking sheet (8 per sheet).

  • Bake the cookies for 8-9 minutes, just until edges are set. Allow to cool & enjoy!
