Melt-in-your-Mouth Sugar Cookies

Apparently I've been lazy lately and have failed to take pictures of any yummy things.... I apologize for the lack of visual aesthetics.  You'll just have to trust my words and believe with faith that these are to die for!

These are not your average crisp sugar cookies, but instead soft and decadent.  The recipe comes from Mac's grandmother and we love it!


1 c. butter, softened
2 c. powdered sugar
2 eggs
1 c. vegetable oil
2 t. vanilla extract
5 c. all-purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cream of tartar
1-2 T. white sugar


Cream butter and powdered sugar.  Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until lemon color.  Add in oil and vanilla.  Add in the flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar.  Mix well.  Chill for 2 hours in the refrigerator (or about 20 minutes in the freezer will do).  Roll into balls, dip into white sugar and flatten slightly with the bottom of a cup.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Cool completely then frost with your choice of frosting.
