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

"These were unbelievably good! Easy to make but I would cut the amount of sugar a bit. My grandchildren loved them ! Terry (Bronxville NY)"

"Only had 1/2 the cream of tardar so put in 1 teas lemon juice like some of the others. Very good as is but plan on icing them when they are completely cooled:-)"

"I don't know how anyone could call these a dry cookie unless they forgot to add the oil. They are wonderful! My granddaughter and I are baking a batch right now and just sampled them from the oven a few minutes ago. Excellent! We are also using a glass to flatten them before baking. I can't wait to try them using almond extract instead of vanilla. Thank you Sylvia for a wonderful, versatile cookie recipe!"

"I must have done something wrong... I made these last night and they were very dry and had almost no flavor. I followed the recipe exactly. Any suggestions?"
