Amish Sugar Cookies

Comment on this recipe

I usually get about seven dozen cookies.

Ingredients

4-1/2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tarter
1 cup butter or oleo
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup ground nut meats (optional)

Instructions

Stir first three ingredients, set aside. Cream butter, oil, sugar and powdered sugar in mixing bowl on medium speed. Add eggs one at a time, then vanilla, mixing well. Add dry ingredients and nuts. Chill for at least one hour. Roll dough into one inch balls and place two inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with the bottom of glass which has been dipped in sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, depending on how flat you made the cookies.
