Day 15 Of The Rosiethon. Rosie Makes Sugar Cookies.

Today, I'm making Sugar Cookies,
decorated with red and green sugars
and sporting a hint of freshly ground nutmeg
for that extra boost of that je ne sais quoi..

Sugar Cookies
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups flour plus 4 tablespoons, sifted before measuring
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar

Cream butter and both sugars.
Beat eggs with salt and add to creamed mixture.
Beat in oil and vanilla.
Add dry ingredients and mix well.
Refrigerate dough until very cold.
Roll into small balls.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Press balls down with bottom of glass 
dipped in a mixture of sugar and nutmeg.
Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes.
