Frugal Recipe for Sugar Cookie Lovers!

All opinions expressed herein are my own!

Wow! I recently stumbled upon a BOGO sale for vegetable oil that I could not pass up — each bottle came to $1.30!  After stocking up on that fantastic find, I had over six bottles of vegetable oil sitting in my pantry. Hanging out.  Waiting around for something fun to do (smile)! Then it hit me!

I use vegetable shortening for my cookies instead of butter…

Can’t I just use oil?

I can! and I did!

The result is a cookie that is light, fluffy, and full of the vanilla and sugar flavor we wanted AND my kids say they are the “Best Cookie I’ve Ever Made!”   That’s pretty impressive because I make cookies all the time.  Of course, if they are the best cookies ever, I need to share them with you, right? Look for the Best Sugar Cookie Recipe Ever (below).

    I haven’t tried oil in cookies, but if it makes them tasty, I’d try it. Nice idea.
