Swig sugar cookies

These cookies are featured in my 2nd on camera baking video on YouTube.  I wanted to thank two coworkers for having me on their podcast (search “the outsider podcast” on iTunes or soundcloud to hear the interview).  They both like sugar cookies, so voila – Swig sugar cookies!

1/2 cup butter (softened),  1/4 cup +1/8 cup oil,  1/2 cup + 1/8 cup sugar, 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup powdered sugar,  1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla,  2 1/2 tsp water, 2 3/4 cups flour, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp cream of tartar.

Preheat oven to 350.  Cream butter, oil and sugars.  Add egg, water and vanilla.  Fold in dry ingredients.  Scoop out 3 tbs dough.  Roll into ball.  Place on cookie sheet, lined with non stick baking sheet.    Spray bottom of a drinking glass with Pam and dip in sugar.  Lightly flatten cookie.  Repeat scoop, roll, pam and sugar dip process for remaining dough. Bake 8 to 10 minutes.  Let cool.  Leave plain or frost if desired.  Store in covered container.
