Mini Swig Style Sugar Cookies (Bite Size)
I’ve been wanting to make mini sugar cookies for a long time, I just couldn’t decide what recipe to use to make these mini creations. I have so many sugar cookie recipes that I love but I knew I needed to find the perfect one & that it had to have frosting on top. I finally decided that a swig style sugar cookie would be perfect because they are a soft style sugar cookie & they have lots of frosting on top, plus they are a favorite of mine. This recipe makes quite a few mini cookies…
I fit about 42 cookies on each cookie sheet. This recipe makes a lot so if you don’t want to make a ton of mini cookies you could cut the recipe in half or if you get tired of making mini cookies you could make half mini half regular size cookies.
I’m not going to lie, making mini cookies definitely takes more time than making big cookies but it’s so worth it to have fun bite size sugar cookies!
- 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
- ¾ cup oil
- 1¼ cup sugar
- ¾ cup powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
- ½ teaspoon baking soda

- ½ cup (1 stick) salted butter, softened
- ½ cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons milk

- Add eggs, water, & vanilla & mix.

- Scoop cookie dough by the heaping ½ teaspoon full & roll into balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet & flatten with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar to ¼" thickness. Place 1" apart.
- Bake for 7-8 minutes or until the cookies are set & they are a pale golden color, be careful not to overcook them.
- Let cool & then prepare frosting.
- For Frosting: Combine all ingredients and using a mixer or a whisk & spoon mix ingredients together until you get a spreading consistency. You may need to add extra powdered sugar if the frosting is too thin. If it's too thick thin it out by adding more milk.
- Frost cookies when they are cool.
