Lemon Sugar Cookies


1 Cup Softened Butter

1 Cup Sugar

1 Cup Confectioners’ Sugar

1 Cup Vegetable Oil

2 Eggs

1 Teaspoon Lemon Extract

4 ½ Cups Unbleached Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar

Additional Sugar

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugars and oil.  Beat in the eggs and extract.  Combine the flour, baking soda and cream of tartar.  Stir into the creamed mixture.  The dough will be stiff.  Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheet.  Press the dough ball with the bottom of a glass that has been dipped in water and then in sugar.  Bake at 350° F for 10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.  Makes about 11 dozen cookies.
