2 large eggs
1 cup canola oil
1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar, plus extra for the tops of the cookies
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
Cream together eggs, oil, butter, granulated sugar, powdered sugar, and vanilla.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Refrigerate the dough for 1 hour. When you take the dough out of the refrigerator, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Use a cookie scoop or spoon to drop balls of cookie dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. (I did line my cookie sheets with parchment paper.)
Smear butter on the bottom of a glass, then dip it into granulated sugar.
Use the glass to flatten the balls of dough, dipping into the sugar each time.
Repeat until all are flattened.
Bake for 9-11 minutes, until the cookies are just barely turning brown around the edges.
Cool before eating... I dare you to wait. :-)
