An excellent cookie and so tender. I thought we'd have to refrigerate the dough before forming into balls but it worked out ok without chilling. We used a small meatball (1-inch size) scoop and made about 5 dozen cookies.

Excellent cookies, I have but one 3'X 4' counter to work at; not having to roll these out was great and they were and I say were cause they are all gone...Fantastic

These are awesome. Very light and fluffy. I like my sugar cookies with lemon flavor, so I left out the vanilla and added the juice and grated rind of one lemon. Truly great cookies.

This is my Grandma's EXACT recipe for sugar cookies! I have a batch of them in the oven right now, and they are my favorite! They definitely melt in your mouth. I use my Pampered Chef small melon baller to make these all the same size...then I flatten with the bottom of a glass, and sprinkle with colored sugars! YUM!

Thank you for this one. They were very easy to make. I used a small scoop to form them, and the recipe made like 36 good-sized cookies. Delicately crispy on the outside, tender inside. Great. Also, I liked the idea of a recipe using oil instead of shortening--to cut back on trans-fat.

A light and fluffy cookie, not too sweet, just perfect. Flattened them with a potato masher and it gave them a nice design on top. Kids loved them. Will make again and again. Thanks for posting

We had a caroling party for charity the other night, and these were a hit! The children scarfed them down, my son claims eat ate too many, and my husband admit he ate TEN of them that night. Great taste. Light and sweet. Thanks for sharing.

These are perfect!! They are literally the best sugar cookies I've ever had in my life! They cooked to perfection-not too soft, not too hard. :-)

Very good! Tender and delicate cookies. Only change I made was to add 1t almond extract. Had planned to ice cookies for the holiday, but this cookie really isn't the best choice for frosting as they're not very sturdy. I did use Sugar Cookie Icing and the cookies were delicious. However, these cookies are perfect as is with plain or colored sugar sprinkled on top. If I were to use icing again, I'd only use a drizzle for color. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
