Ingredients:

1 cup butter (room temp)

3/4 cup vegetable oil

1 1/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup powder sugar

2 tablespoons water

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 teaspoon salt

5 1/2 cups flour
Directions: 

Cream together butter, vegetable oil, eggs, sugars, and water. 

Combine all dry ingredients, and then slowly add to butter mixture. 

Mix until well combined. Dough should be a little crumbly. 

Roll dough into golf ball sized balls. Place on cookie sheet. 

To give the cookies their signature rough edge place about 1/4 cup of sugar and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Dip the bottom of a glass into the sugar and then smush the dough balls with it (you may need to get the glass slightly wet to get the sugars to stick). When you smush the dough you may need to also twist the glass as well.  

Bake at 350 for about 8 mins (they should barely be browning on the bottom). Cool cookies on a rack, once cool keep in the fridge.

Directions:
