"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."
"This is by far the worst cookie recipe I ever made. It tastes horrible!"
"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..."
"Very yummy and easy to make. It did not even last two days. "
"These were very good. I liked the soft and chewy texture. Will make again!"
"Good cookies. I made a sheet and cut them up while still warm .. thanks"
"Amazing! I literally just made the dough and baked these in 15 minutes! and they taste great!
not to sweet for being sugar cookies, so thats a huge plus! and they obviously werent buttery because i used olive oil!
would def recommend this recipe!"
"these cookies in my opinion are not the best i have ever had . :( i am very sorry ... they were okay but not my favorite"
"These cookies are excellent! I added 1/4 cup of brown sugar for a little extra flavor and they turned out delicious! Thanks for the great recipe!!!"
"Easy to make the batter, took about 3 minutes. I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 oil in mine. Turned out really well, and just sweet enough for me and my family. I divided the batter into thirds and added a different food coloring to each one, which made them fun for my little one. Will make this again."
"The cookies tasted good. Its hard to believe they don't have any butter in them. They are soft & cakey. Would make this recipe again. They are not overly sweet either. I made the recipe as is."
"These cookies were awful, I tried making them twice and both times they turned out terrible. At first I thought it was me, so i tried again, but after the second try I gave up. The cookies have a great texture but an awful taste."
"These are the most disgusting "cookies" ever!!! Made a nice buttercream to go on top and not even the flavor of that cut the nasty cookie taste. Noticing all the positive reviews everyone changed the recipe in some way. Might as well just create a whole new one."
"This was the easiest recipe I've ever seen! My kids are all very picky eaters and they couldn't keep their hands off the batter or cookies! This is a very soft and delicious cookie and it's so easy to make, we are going to let the grandkids make them this weekend!"
"Decent enough, for a sugar cookie recipe that doesn't call for butter or shortening. Definitely increase the vanilla and sugar. It turned out quite cakey, probably from all of the baking soda- which helped stop the spread from all of the oil. It's a good recipe for something sweet, quickly and with limited ingredients."
