I, too used 1 c. sugar and 1 T. vanilla but I thought these cookies had a "funny" taste. They would be great for a quick last minute batch of cookies, but otherwise I would not make again.

SOOO GOOD! These are my new favorites. Made recipe exactly as written and ended up with 32 great cookies. Couldn't press down the cookies with a cup--even when I moistened the cup the dough stuck to it. I ended up just pressing them down with my fingers. These freeze really well too!

I'm not usually a fan of sugar cookies, but these were AMAZING! I was looking for a sugar cookie recipe that didn't call for pure butter (since I didn't have any on hand) & these exceeded my expectations. I made them for a daycare party to decorate, but I discovered they didn't even need the icing! I'm making them again less than 2 days later for a 4th of July Party & not icing them this time. Thx for my new Go-To Sugar cookie recipe!

These are great AND so easy. I also increased sugar to 1 cup and vanilla to 1 TBSP. In my oven 8 minutes was perfect.

I've never made cookies before and didn't have vegetable oil so I substituted pure olive oil, the cookies still came out great, but I think using the wrong oil dried them out a little bit. Still very good and easy to make, will make them again!

A nice tasting cookie with just the right amount of sweetness, but you really have to watch that they don't brown too quickly on their bottoms!!

These cookies turned out really good. I used 1/3 oil , 1 TBS vanilla, 1cup sugar and added 1/3 soft butter. I topped with strawberry frosting. SO GOOD!

I followed some of the advice and increased the sugar to one cup, and the vanilla to 1 tbsp. Also, I put sprinkles on top before I put them in the oven instead of pressing them down with a sugar coated glass. Very good! They have been a hit with everyone who has tried them.

Me and my nieces really enjoyed these. They weren't too sweet.. just right! Soft and yummy. Although they are best to be eaten within 2 hours, because they get hard quickly and aren't as good. I also didn't get to put vanilla in mine as I was out due to the holidays.
