Sugar Cookies With No Butter
Sugar Cookies With No Butter

This afternoon, I felt the mood to bake something. It was either sugar cookies or brownies. I decided to make sugar cookies because it was quick, but when I checked the recipe, it called for more butter than I had left. So I went online and researched sugar cookies with no butter, and this quick and easy recipe showed up. I jotted down the ingredients, the temperature, and how to bake it. I didn't look at the instructions. I kind of knew what to do already. So this is the way I did it, and it came out really good.

If you liked this recipe and tried it, please comment and tell me how yours came out.
