These sugar cookies are the most different, richest ones I have ever found. They have a killer amount of butter and oil, but worth the indulgence! You truly can "eat just one" of these babies!! For variety, I have added unsweetened cocoa or lemon extract, but the original recipe is still the best. It was given to me in 1986 by a lady attending a Tupperware party I was presenting!!
