1teaspoonvanillaI use 1.5 teaspoons, I like vanilla
1teaspooncream of tartar
4cupsall purpose flour
Preheat oven to 375.
In large mixing bowl place shortening, oil, sugars, vanilla, and eggs. Beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Add all dry ingredients and beat again until very well blended and a dough is formed.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls or use a cookie dough scoop. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.
Using a glass with a flat bottom, dip the glass into a little bit of granulated sugar and then lightly press down the top of each cookie (dipping in sugar again before each one) to flatten the tops a bit.
Bake for ten minutes, or until very lightly browned around the bottom edges.
