Chewy Sugar Cookies (America's Test Kitchen)
30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
11 ingredients

Replacing a portion of the melted butter with vegetable oil ensured a chewy cookie without affecting flavor. And incorporating an unusual addition, cream cheese, into the cookie dough kept the cookies tender, while the slight tang of the cream cheese made for a rich, not-too-sweet cookie. The final dough will be slightly softer than most cookie dough. For the best results, handle the dough as briefly and gently as possible when shaping the cookies. Overworking the dough will result in flatter cookies.
