Grandma's AMAZING sugar cookies. You're welcome.

3/4 cup butter (softened)
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon real vanilla (I like Watkins clear double strength)

Beat above ingredients together until fluffy.

Mix together and then add to the above:

1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

Then slowly add 4 cups of flour (all purpose)

Dough will be soft. Roll large teaspoonsful into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets.

Flatten the balls with a glass (with a decorative bottom) dipped in sugar.

Bake at 350 degrees for 13 minutes until the edges are golden.

Watch closely, because they are very pale when they are cooked, but if you leave them a minute too long...the things burn.
