Crispy Sugar Cookies

Over the years, I have tried many sugar cookie recipes, and this is by far the best I have tasted. They come out crispy, and not overly sweet. They are good with a cup of tea, and make great Christmas cookies for the kids...and Santa!

4 ½ C all-purpose flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cream of tarter
1 C sugar
1 C powdered sugar
1 C butter, softened
¾ C vegetable oil
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine 1 C flour, soda, salt and cream of tartar. Set aside.
Combine sugars, butter, and oil, add eggs and vanilla, mixing well.
Fold in flour. Chill OVERNIGHT.

Shape dough into balls, the diameter of a half dollar. Place on cookie sheet; flatten with a flat bottomed glass dipped in sugar. (I use finer textured colored sugar.) Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes. Cool on wire rack. If the cookies are too thick they will not have the great crispy texture.
