  • 1 cup Butter, softened 228g
  • 1 cup Vegetable oil
  • 1 cup Sugar 201g
  • 1 cup Confectioners' sugar 125g
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 4-½ cups All-purpose flour 544g
  • 1 teaspoon Baking soda 4g
  • 1 teaspoon Cream of tartar 3.4g


  • In a stand mixer or hand-held beat the butter, oil, and sugars until creamy. Mix in eggs and add vanilla extract until well blended and creamed.
  • I weigh flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar in a large bowl (don't forget to tare between ingredients). Then, gradually add to the creamed mixture.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Drop by small teaspoons or cookie scoop (I like cookie scoop because it makes even-sized cookies) onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake until lightly browned 10-12 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
