Mamoo's Sugar Cookies

I love these cookies especially since they are drop cookies. They are made with the most unusual combination of ingredients. BUT they are so delicious! These are more like "Sandies" style cookies. They have small crunch but then melt in your mouth. I bet you will have to make more than one batch. And YES your friends will want the recipe.

Mamoo's Sugar Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup powdered sugar 10X
2 eggs
4 1/4 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract (or lemon extract)

Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

Mix together butter and both sugars. Mix until light and creamy. About 2 minutes. Slowly add oil and then eggs. Mix in vanilla and extract or your choice. Scrape down sides of bowl. Sift together flour, soda, cream of tartar and salt. Slowly add flour, 1/2 cup at a time. Mix thoroughly between cups of flour, then scraping the bowl down each time.

Scoop by teaspoonfuls or scoop with a cookie scoop. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until sides are light brown. Remove baking sheet from oven and let cookies rest for 2 minutes on the pan. Then remove from the sheet pan and place on a wire cookie rack to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container. Frost with your favorite icing and top off with sprinkles.
