  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 c oil
  • tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 c butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 c flour
  • Optional - colored sanding sugar


  • Cream butter, oil (I used canola but vegetable oil could be used as well), and sugar for approximately 2 minutes.
  • Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  • Sift the dry ingredients and gradually add to wet mix.
  • Roll dough into balls and dip in powdered, granulated or sanding sugar.
  • Press down with a glass to flatten slightly.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes (depending on your oven) until edges are just slightly brown. Don't overbake!
