Cream butter and powdered sugar in a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer 2-3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Mix in oil until combined.
½ cup unsalted butter, 1 ⅓ cup powdered sugar, 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
Add egg, followed by vanilla extract, and mix until smooth.
1 large egg, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Sift in flour, baking powder, and salt and fold in until combined. Place bowl of dough in refrigerator to chill 15 minutes.
2 cups all-purpose flour, ¾ teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
Use a cookie scoop to portion 4-tablespoon scoops of dough onto baking sheet at least 2 inches apart. Press with the bottom of a jar or measuring cup that has been dusted with powdered sugar -- cookies should be about ½ inch thick.
Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until tops of cookies are set and no longer glossy. They will still look slightly underdone but will set up more as they cool.
Let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Pink Buttercream Frosting
Combine butter and powdered sugar in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer until fluffy.
¼ cup unsalted butter, 1 ½ cup powdered sugar
Mix in almond extract and salt until smooth.
½ teaspoon almond extract, ⅛ teaspoon salt
Mix in heavy cream, adding more cream as needed to achieve a thick, yet smooth consistency.
2 tablespoon heavy cream
For pink frosting, add a drop of red food coloring. Add another drop if needed to achieve desired color.
1-2 drops red food coloring
Room Temperature Egg: It’s important to use room temperature eggs in most baking so that the cold egg doesn’t affect the rise or even baking of your result. However, if you didn’t have a chance to leave your egg out to get to room temperature, try this tip! Just submerge the egg in a bowl of lukewarm water for about 15 minutes. That will allow them to get to room temperature more quickly and ensure a great result for this Crumbl chilled sugar cookie recipe!Softening Butter: If you're in a rush, soften your butter in seconds by popping it in the microwave! Heat your stick of butter on high for about 20 seconds, rotating every few seconds. Measuring Flour and Powdered Sugar: Make sure you're measuring your flour and powdered sugar correctly, either by weight with a kitchen scale or using the spoon-and-level method.
