Favorite Sugar Cookies

These cookies are my favorite.  They are rich, buttery and melt in your mouth.  Remember to share,  I am a cookie lover and I could eat several.  Only drawback the dough needs to be refrigerated overnight.  Copyright 1984 by Farm Journal.

Sugar Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup cooking oil
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sifted confectioners sugar
4 cups sifted flour
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt

Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Blend in oil and vanilla. Sift flour, soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Gradually and dry ingredients to creamed mixture, mix well. Chill dough in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight.
Shape dough in balls the size of walnut and press dough to flat circle using your fingers. I used a kid size rolling pin then dipped each cookie in sprinkles. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10- 12 minutes.
