      This recipe is terrific! We loved the taste and texture and it's a great recipe to let kids help out. I rolled some of the cookies in sugar with cinnamon and they were even better, but we really like cinnamon. Thanks for a great recipe!

      I so wanted these to be as wonderful as others thought. I followed the recipe exactly and still they had a strange (to me) texture, too crumbly I guess. I thought I might have cooked them too long so next tray I cooked just 10 minutes, still too crumbly for me. sorry I wish I could like them .

      I was sorta dissapointed in the recipe. The oil and butter didn't blend. I ended up with a VERY soft, sticky, and dull colored dough. And I froze it for 30 minutes and chilled it 30 minutes the end product was extremely delicate and hard to decorate but the taste was not how a REAL sugar cookie is supposed to be.
