Sugar Cookies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Trisha W

This recipe was given to me by a lady from Texas about 25 yrs. ago. It is the best sugar cookie recipe I have ever tasted, and the response to it from others who have eaten it has been similar to my experience. I have never tried to ice it or make shapes from it. It's just good on its own. This is a double recipe - because that is how it was given to me.

I tried making these and must have done something wrong. The first tray I made had too much oil and kind of tasted like funnel cake.(it tasted great though so I ate them all, haha.) The second tray had too much butter. I added some flour and it still didn't taste right!
