  1. In a large bowl, with a mixer on medium speed, beat 1/2 cup butter, granulated sugar, and powdered sugar until smooth.
  2. Add oil, egg, and vanilla and beat until well blended.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix 2 cups flour, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt.
  4. Stir into butter mixture, then beat until well blended.
  5. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and freeze until dough is firm, about 1 hour.
  6. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place about 2 inches apart on buttered 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.
  7. Press each cookie with the lightly floured tines of a fork to flatten slightly.
  8. Bake cookies in a 350° regular or convection oven until edges are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes; if baking two sheets at once in one oven, switch their positions halfway through baking.
  9. Let cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then use a wide spatula to transfer to racks to cool completely.
