2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter (not margarine),
softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets. Stir together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs, vegetable oil and vanilla. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until smooth. Stir in nuts. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons onto the prepared cookie sheets. Flatten cookies with a fork.
