My Favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe

This is my favorite cookie recipe in the whole world. These aren't good for doing cut outs though because they have too much fat in them.

Ella Anderson's Best Sugar Cookies

1 cup of powdered sugar
1 cup of white granulated sugar
1 cup of butter (2 sticks- not margarine)
1 cup of oil
2 eggs
4 cups plus 4 heaping Tbs. of flour
1 tsp. of baking soda
1 tsp. of salt
1 tsp. of cream of tartar

Cream the sugar, butter and oil together. Mix dry ingredients together and add to the creamed mixture. Drop by heaping teaspoons onto greased cookie sheets. Press down slightly with the flat part of a glass dipped in sugar. Decorate with colored sugars, nuts, cherries or any other thing you like.
Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees until slightly golden.

This recipe came from the book "Murder in the Air" (page 335) by Ellen Hart.
