Super Simple Sugar Cookies

These are the World’s Best Sugar Cookies”.

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks (1/2 pound) butter, softened
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, plus more for dipping
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.  In a large bowl, with the electric mixer, beat the butter, oil, and both sugars until creamy.  Add the eggs and vanilla, beating until well blended.

Gradually add the flour to the butter mixture, beating until well combined.  The dough will be light and fluffy.

Using a cookie scoop, drop onto cookie sheets, spacing the cookies about 2 inches apart.

Dip the bottom of a drinking glass in granulated sugar and press the cookies to 1/4 inch thick.

Bake until the edges are golden brown, 9 to 11 minutes.  Let cool on the sheets for a few minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes 5 dozen.
