HOMEMADE PECAN SANDIES


2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, divided
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped pecans 
1/2 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, vegetable oil, 1 cup of the granulated sugar and the powdered sugar until smooth.

Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the pecans.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and roll each ball in remaining sugar. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto parchment-lined cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are golden. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
