Added: Tuesday, September 2, 2008


1 cup powdered sugar (confectioners')
1 cup granulated white sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup salad or peanut oil
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 cups flour

Combine all ingredients except for the flour. Add flour gradually mixing in using a wooden spoon.
When dough is mixed, roll into small balls between your hands. Drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Press each cookie flat using a glass dipped in granulated sugar (dip once for each cookie pressed).

If desired, decorate with crushed pecans, walnuts, macadamia nuts, slivered almonds or pistachios for the adults, or sprinkle with colored sugars and sprinkles, chocolate chips or cherries for the children.

For a variation, use rum or brandy instead of vanilla. Coconut or banana rum add an exciting hint of tropical flavor to boost a holiday standard out of the doldrums!
