HOOSIER OLD-FASHIONED SUGAR COOKIES

1 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1 cup canola oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl combine the butter, oil, granulated and powdered sugars, mixing until creamy.  Add the eggs and vanilla.

In a separate large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt; add to the butter mixture and blend together well.  Using your hands, shape the dough into small balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets.  Using a glass bottom that has been dipped in water ten into colored sugar, flatten each cookie.  Bake 10 to 12 minutes just until lightly browned.

Yield: Approximately 100 small cookies
