Sugar Cookies

This recipe was taken from my favorite recipe book http://www.allrecipes.com/
I've made this several times and each time they are delicious! so I thought I would share ;-D


  • 1 cup margarine

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • about 1 cup extra white sugar for rolling cookies in


  • In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, oil, white sugar, and confectioner's sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour; baking soda, cream of tartar and salt; stir into the sugar mixture until just blended. Cover and chill dough for at least 3 hours or overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheet/s. Roll the chilled dough into walnut sized balls and roll the balls in the remaining sugar. Place them 2 inches apart onto the cookie sheet/s. Press into each ball with the open end of a plastic thread spool. Dip the spool into the sugar between each cookie to prevent sticking problems.

  • Bake for 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven. Do Not over bake or you will lose the delicate taste.
