Tea Cookies

Tea Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups plus 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and salt. Beat well. Beat in oil and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients together and mix in. Makes a very soft dough. Drop by scant teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Oil bottom of a glass — dip into a dish of sugar — flatten cookies on pan. (One oiling will do — the oil in the cookies will take care of it). Dip in sugar before every cookie.

Bake for 8 minutes at 350°. Makes 7 dozen. Store tightly covered.
