These easy-to-make cookies simply melt in your mouth! I've passed the recipe around to many friends. After I gave the recipe to my sister, she entered the cookies in a local fair and won the "best of show" prize! —Sylvia Ford, Kennett, Missouri

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 17, 2014

The only thing I did different that corrected the bland taste or texture is I used a cookie scoop then I pressed each cookie with the small end of a meat cleaver giving it a waffle texture. I only baked them for 7 to 8 minutes no longer because they continue baking. After they are cooled I made a glaze of powdered sugar, milk and a dash of vanilla. I brushed the cookie with the glaze using a pastry brush. They turned out great!

I made this cookie today and followed the directions exactly except for making them larger. I was very disappointed after reading the reviews. It is a very bland cookie. At the very least I would double the amount of vanilla. The other ingredient that I don't like is the cup of oil. The cookie is actually oily feeling in your hand and leaves your fingers greasy.

The only factor in its favor is that it's an attractive looking cookie.

I'm so excited! My grandmother used to makes these and I lost the recipe years ago. I can't wait to make them!

Best sugar cookie recipe ever! These are great to roll out and use cookie cutters. For extra special cookie, frost with a light vanilla icing.
