Sugar Cookies

No but seriously, folks.  These sugar cookies are the best.  These aren't the cut-out type-- they're the melt in your mouth, perfect balance of sugary/buttery/light/rich, perfect for dunking, perfect for freezing, perfect for scarfing sort of sugar cookie.

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup cooking oil
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cups + 4T flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • Additional white sugar
Cream together the sugars and fats.  Add the beaten egg and vanilla.  Sift together the dry ingredients then add.  Roll into balls then roll in sugar.  Flatten/indent slightly with fingers.  Bake 8 minutes @ 350F.
