  • 1 cups - butter, softened
  • 1 cups - vegetable oil
  • 1 cups - white sugar
  • 1 cups - confectioners' sugar
  • 2 - eggs
  • 1 teaspoons - vanilla extract
  • 4 cups - all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoons - baking soda
  • 1 teaspoons - cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoons - salt
  • 2 cups - chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cups - white sugar, for decoration
  • Directions:

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    In large bowl, cream together butter, oil, 1 cup sugar and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla.
    In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Stir into creamed mixture. Mix in the pecans.
    Roll dough into 1-inch balls and roll each ball in sugar. (To limit sugar I will just dip the tops in sugar). Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
    Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool on wire racks.

    Prep Time: 15 min
    Cook Time: 12 min


    While these cookies are still hot, I sometimes push a piece of pecan in the center. One time I did not roll the balls of dough in the sugar; they still melted in your mouth. For Valentines Day I sprinkled some with red sugar.
