Amish Sugar Cookies
Preheat oven to 350°.
1c. powdered sugar
1 c. butter, softened
1 c. oil
Combine all these very well.
Add 2 eggs and 1 tsp. vanilla, beat well.
Combine 4 1/2 c. flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. cream of tarter and add to sugar/egg mixture. Stir until well combined.
(At this point you can chill for several hours. I do this if the dough seems too soft.)
Drop small balls of dough onto greased cookie sheets. (I used just parchment paper. No extra fat that way.) Flatten each ball with a fork and sprinkle with sugar. (I dip my fork into sugar between cookies to keep it from sticking. And I use colored sugar for sprinkling.)
Bake for 10-12 mins, just until the edges are starting to get golden. Cool on rack.
