Melt-in-Your Mouth Sugar Cookies


Yield: 4 dozen



1 cup butter, softened

1 cup vegetable oil

1 cup confectioner’s sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

4 cups all-purpose flour




In an electric mixer, cream butter, oil and sugars until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, vanilla and salt.  Combine dry ingredients and blend thoroughly.  Cover cookie dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of one hour.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


Roll dough into small balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet or Silpat.  Flatten the balls with the bottom of a glass or with the palm of your hand.  Sprinkle each cookie with some confectioner’s sugar and bake for approximately 12 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool slightly.  While still warm, dust the cookies with additional confectioner’s sugar.  Remove cookies to wire rack and let cool completely.
