1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup cooking oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
extra sugar for pressing cookies


Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

Cream together the granulated sugar, powdered sugar, butter, and cooking oil. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add dry ingredients, (the next four ingredients) and mix to incorporate.

Roll dough into small balls about the size of a quarter. With a heavy-bottomed crystal vase with a decorative bottom, or other cookie press, dip in sugar to coat well. Smash each ball of dough so they are spread out and flat. Leaving an imprint and sugar.

Bake 10 minutes, until the edges just start to turn slightly brown. Do not bake too long. Cool on the baking sheet briefly then transfer to wire rack to cool the rest of the way.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I thought I would out smart this recipe by making only a half batch so that I would not be lured into their sugary lair. Now I am wishing that I had made a full batch because I keep wanting to eat more cookies. Another thought is that you could use colored decorating sugar to give it some color, or maybe even add a little food coloring to the dough to give it that special pink cotton candy tint.

Super-fantastic Recipe!
