1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. salt

Cream together butter, oil, sugar and powdered sugar and whip until smooth and fluffy; beat in eggs (one at a time) and then stir in vanilla.
Combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt; stir into the sugar mixture until blended. Cover and chill dough for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Roll dough into balls and roll into sugar. Press ball with the open end of a plastic thread spool. Dip the spool into sugar each time to prevent sticking. Bake for 8-10 minutes in a 350 oven. Do NOT over bake!
