Why I Love This Recipe

This was in Gramma's book.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups butter (NOT margarine!)
2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups vegetable oil
4 eggs
3 tsp. vanilla
8 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cream of tartar
2 tsp. salt


Cream butter and sugars.

Add oil, eggs and vanilla and mix well.

Add dry ingredients gradually.

Measure out by level spoonfuls (about 2 tablespoons).

Roll into balls.

Place on ungreased baking sheet and flatten with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.

Bake at 375 degrees just until set and edges are slightly browned - about 10 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack.

Makes about 6 dozen.
