Lemon Butter Cookies

I always love the taste of lemon in cookies. These are wonderfully light with a nice lemon flavor.

Lemon Butter Cookies

1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. confectioners sugar
3/4 c. butter
1/4 c. canola oil
1 Tbsp. lemon zest
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 egg
2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

In a large bowl, cream sugars, butter and oil. Beat until light and fluffy. Add lemon zest and lemon juice. Add egg. Blend well. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Mix well. Refrigerate at least one hour. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Form dough into 1-inch balls Bake 7 - 12 minutes. Remove from cookies sheets to cooling racks at once.
