Old-Fashioned Drop Sugar Cookies

4 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp salt

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup sugar

1 cup powdered sugar

3/4 cup vegetable oil

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla

 

1. Heat oven to 350 F.

2. In medium bowl, whisk together flour through salt.

3. In large bowl, cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Add oil, eggs, and vanilla and beat well.

4. Using a cookie scoop, drop mounds of dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Decorate if desired. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until cookies are brown on the edges and just golden on top. Let cool at least 3 minutes before moving to wire racks to completely cool. Store in an airtight container with wax paper between layers.
