Grandma's Jones' Sugar Cookies

Grandma Jones’ Sugar Cookies

¼ c. granulated sugar
½ c. powdered sugar
½ c. butter (softened)
½ c. oil
1 egg
½ t baking soda
½ t vanilla
½ t salt
½ t cream of tartar
2 c + 2 T flour

Sift dry ingredients; cream sugars, butter and oil.  Add egg, add dry ingredients.  Drop by spoonful onto ungreased baking sheet and flatten with glass dipped in granulated sugar.  Bake at 350ยบ until lightly browned – around 5-8 minutes.

Notes: If the dough seems too wet after you’ve mixed it, place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. If your kitchen is warm, you may have to  keep the dough in the fridge between batches. When you flatten the cookies, make sure that you REALLY flatten them – until you can almost see through them. You’ll have to dip the glass into your sugar a couple of times per cookie.
