  • 1 c. confectioner's sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4½ c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, oil and sugars.
  3. Add eggs one at a time and beat until well blended.
  4. Mix in vanilla.
  5. Stir flour, baking soda and cream of tartar together in a separate bowl. Add gradually (or all at once, it's up to you) to the creamed mix.
  6. Drop by small teaspoonsful onto ungreased (or parchment paper-covered) baking sheets. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
  7. Note: If you don't have all day to scoop out cookie dough, use a larger cookie scoop and cook for a minute or two longer (just keep an eye on the cookies and take them out when they're lightly browned).
