Aunt Jan's Sugar Cookies

*Please ignore the bites taken out of some of these cookies...Contessa obviously couldn't wait for me to take a picture before sampling them. They're just THAT good!

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups powdered sugar (or 1 cup powdered and 1 cup granulated sugar)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cream of tartar, optional
4 1/2 - 5 cups flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix margarine, oil, and all sugar. Then add vanilla and beaten eggs. Mix well. Soft dry ingredients and add to sugar mixture. Dough will be very soft.

1. Roll into small balls and roll in sugar/cinnamon mixture. Press down lightly witha glass on ungreased cookie sheet.
2. Chill dough for 30 minutes. Roll out 1/4-inch thick, cut out with cookie cutters; ice/sprinkle after baking.
3. Use cookie press.

Bake until very lightly golden. (8 minutes?)
