This yummy sugar cookie contains no butter!

Have you ever gotten a cookie craving but were missing a few key ingredients? This happened to me. I'd run out of butter, so I went to Google and searched for a sugar cookie recipe that called for vegetable oil instead of butter. What popped up had a couple more ingredients than I'd pictured, but luckily I did have everything on hand. I decided to give the recipe a try, and I loved it. What's amazing is that my husband loved it, too, and he is a picky eater. The cookies are soft in the middle and crispy on the edges. Perfect.
