 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/8  c             butter -- softened
    1 1/8  c             salad oil
    1 1/8  c             powdered sugar -- sifted if it is lump
    1      c             sugar
    2                    eggs
    1 1/8  tsp           vanilla
    3 1/4  c             flour
    1 1/8  tsp           baking soda
      2/3  tbsp          cream of tartar
      1/2  tsp           salt
                         extra sugar (for dipping)
 
 1.  Cream the butter and sugars, then add oil and mix well.
 
 2.  Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
 
 3.  Sift the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt together, then add
 to above and mix well.
 
 4.  Refrigerate overnight, or until dough is firm.  If you want to speed
 this up, put the dough in the freezer, but keep an eye on it.
 
 5.  Preheat oven to 175 C .
 
 6.  Drop dough in 3ml amounts on an ungreased cookie sheet. Dip a glass in
 dough and wipe excess off.  Then dip the glass in sugar and flatten a
 cookie.  Repeat the dip-in-sugar flatten-cookie sequence until all are done.
 The cookies won't spread in baking, so you can easily judge how far apart to
 put them  (you want room to cook, but not to grow).  If you find that the
 dough is getting too soft to flatten easily, put it in the refrigerator
 between batches.
 
 7.  Bake for about 5-6 minutes, until the edges are JUST beginning to turn
 golden brown.  Take off the cookie sheet and put on waxed paper or foil to cool.
