  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Cream sugar, salt, oil and egg together. Mix together the flour and cream of tartar. Slowly mix the flour mixture into the egg mixture until you can form a ball. Form into balls about the size of a walnut. Grease the bottom of a glass and press the balls flat on a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sugar or colored sugar and bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes until edges are brown. (4H Blue Ribbon Winner, 1967 )
