Perfect cookie

Have you ever gotten a cookie craving, but you're missing a few ingredients. If so, you are like me. I was craving sugar cookies, so I went to Google and typed in "three-ingredient sugar cookies." But to my dismay, the recipes called for butter, which I didn't have. So I searched for recipes that used vegetable oil, and this one popped up. It wasn't the three-ingredient recipe that I was looking for, but I had all the ingredients. I made this version, and I love it. What's amazing is that my husband loved them too, and he is a picky eater. The cookies are soft in the middle and crispy on the edges. Perfect.

        This is a great recipe to make especially if you don't have butter.

        This sounds like a great recipe if you need to make cookies without butter. People who are on dairy-free diets might like this a lot. As for me, I like the flavor of butter.
