Easy Sugar Cookies

My neighbor/friend/carpool lady, Crystal, brought me some delicious sugar cookies that were different than the traditional ones. As soon as you take a bite it crumbles and sort of melts in your mouth. Also, you don't roll this dough out and cut out shapes. You roll the dough into balls and flatten them! How easy is that? Sometimes you want a sugar cookie that you can make fun shapes with, but sometimes you just want a sugar cookie without that hard work! And this one is definitely worth making.

Easy Sugar Cookies

2 sticks butter
1 C cooking oil
1 C powdered sugar
1 C granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
5 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt

Mix butter, oil and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Sift flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt and add to the creamed mixture. Chill for at least 30 minutes. Roll into balls and place them on cookie sheet. Press down on the ball with the bottom of a jar or glass to make it flat. Bake at 325 degrees for about 10 minutes. (These cookies can also be rolled in cinnamon-sugar before you flatten them, it makes them more like snickerdoodles.)
