Sugar Cookies

We're feeling festive around here, so I used a pumpkin cookie cutter.

Elaine's Famous Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 cup salad oil
2 tsp. vanilla
4 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. salt

Cream butter and sugars; beat in eggs one at a time until light and fluffy. Beat in oil and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients and gradually add to sugar mixture, beating till well blended. Cover and chill several hours.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface. Use your favorite cookie cutters. Refrigerate dough not being used. Place cookies on cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes till lightly browned. Frost with vanilla frosting.
