I love to bake and try out new recipes like this one. I love this recipe, and I think you will, too.
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 of 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.

Looking forward to trying this sometime. Could be interesting to experiment with using it as a base for a variety of desserts.

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.
