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!

These turned out very nice.!!! I added i cup of sugar and more vanilla like Johanna2 suggested. I rolled them into balls and pressed them down for a more finished look. I also added aprox. 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract and green food coloring (to wet mixture) and sprinkles, and whala! Christmas cookies!!! Very festive looking.

I started to freak out reading all the comments, because people were modifying so much, and random comments said the baking powder taste was horrible, and some said the cookies were oily! In the end I gave up and decided to make it just like the recipe said. I did mix in a little cinnamon with the sugar that I used to flatten out the cookies. And they were GREAT! I have no idea what every is talking about, but they tasted good right out of the oven, and a day later. ...I would tell you if they were good two days after I made them but none of them lasted that long.

These are the best sugar cookies i have ever eaten. I did add a bit more sugar until i found the batter sweet to my liking. One of my favorite cookies and my boyfriend ate ten at a time...

These were very good. I liked the soft and chewy texture. Will make again!
