Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter, oil and sugars; add egg and vanilla and mix.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda and cream of tartar in a separate bowl; gradually add to the creamed mixture.
  3. Chill for several hours or overnight (I've made these and have only chilled them for 2 hours and they turned out fine, however when I've chilled them for several hours they were perfection!).
  4. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2-inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  5. Flatten with a fork dipped in flour; sprinkle with sugar.
  6. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  7. Cool on wire racks.

Really great cookies KC! I doubled all the ingredients excactly to make a double batch. They turned really nice and crispy especially around the edges, but I could not really taste the butter flavor, mabey becaue I doubled the recipe, however, they are still a fantastic cookie that I will make again and again. Oh I even added some tiny chocolate chips! Thanks KC for a really great crispy cookie recipe!...Kittencal:)

One of my daughter's favorites! She's made them for years, and she got the recipe from my mom. Really worth a try! These are easy to use in a cookie press too. You'd better double the recipe, or there won't be any for the next day!
