This was the easiest sugar cookie recipe I've ever made. My family loved them, and some friends raved about how soft they were and asked for the recipe.

These are great! I changed the sugar amount to 1 cup and the vanilla amount to 1 TB. They came out perfect. I'll be making these a lot.

These cookies were great! We substituted softened butter for the oil, but the cookies were still unquestionably delicious!
