Bake Sale Sugar Cookies

It's fall.  Schools and churches are having bake sales.  This cookie is a perfect addition to any bake sale table.  The cookie takes longer to bake then it does to prepare.  This sugar cookie is simple in flavor and just as easy to make. 

You can make two dozen average size cookies or one dozen "giant" cookies.  The giant cookies are the size you will find in a bakery, fetching a price of $1.50 each and up.


1/2 c. butter, room temperature
1/2 c. oil
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. powder sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
granulated sugar for sprinkling

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars.  Add oil, egg, and vanilla; mix well.  Slowly add flour, salt, and baking soda.  Put the bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes.  Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Scoop cookies onto a well sprayed cookie sheet.  Flatten the dough with palm to 1/4 inch thickness and sprinkle with a little granulated sugar.  Bake standard cookies (using average cookie scoop) for 10 to 13 minutes; bake "giant" cookies (using an ice cream scoop) for 18 to 20 minutes.  Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 5 to 7 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.  Store in an airtight container.
