"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1 c. white sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. butter
1 c. corn oil
1 c. Rice Krispies
1 c. oatmeal
1 c. coconut
1/2 c. nuts, optional
1 large egg
1 t. vanilla
1 t. lemon flavoring, optional
1 t. salt
1 t. soda
1 t. cream of tartar
3 1/2 c. flour

Blend sugar, shortening, oil and eggs. Add dry ingredients to flour and stir in nuts. Chill for easier handling, about 1/2 hour to 1 hour. Form into balls about size of walnut. Flatten with a glass dipped in sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes. This makes a large batch. Very Good!
