Perfect Christmas sugar cookie! Great recipe (though, I used canola oil instead of veg. oil...love the parchment paper idea instead of greasing the cookie sheet) and I'll definetly make them again! They were a hit with my family. Also makes a ton, so there's plenty to share with friends. Just put them in pretty tins wrap a bow and voila...a gift!

I just made these and I love them. They are the softest sugar cookies I've ever made, and they are not overly sweet. I omitted the cream of tartar and used canola instead of vegetable oil. And I lined the cookie sheet with parchment paper instead of grease. They are just a little greasy if you eat them while they're still warm. Once they cool down completely, they are fine. I'll definitely make these again!

Easy to make! The only thing I changed was I substituted one cup of whole wheat flour for regular flour. Almost like a soft bread cookie...but melted in your mouth!

This is simliar to a Southern Living cookbook recipe, 1999. The exception is that it only calls for 4 cups of flour. I use Canola oil and add 1 teaspoon of nutmeg. The added nutmeg makes them over the top good!

Really delicious sugar cookie. I have never made a cookie with oil in the batter, but the texture of the cookie is wonderful and the dough is really easy to work with. I took the recomendation of another poster and added some fresh nutmeg, it was delicious! I think next time I will add some almond extract.

Very easy to work with the dough. I added some Andes Peppermint chips to make Peppermint Teacakes and dusted with powdered sugar. Delicious! Plain are great with coffee and Peppermint are terrific with hot chocolate!
