Sugar Cookie Drops
I just finished making these, the last two trays are in the oven...OMG they are so good!! Believe me, I had my doubts when I saw the cup of vegetable oil...?? in a cookie? plus the cup of butter? GO AHEAD, it works!
I did add a little salt (about 3/4 tsp. because I was using unsalted butter)
These are exactly what I wanted. I use a ratcheting cookie scoop so shaping was easy. Rolled them in granulated sugar, flattened the tops with a glass dipped in sugar. Some I sprinkled with additional colored sugars and Christmas sprinkles; some I put red and green M & M's on.
Then slid them in oven, and waited so anxiously. At first nothing..then they puff up slightly, then settle a bit. They smelled heavenly! I never use a timer, just watch them, and waited just until the edges started to lightly brown. Then pulled 'em out. And patiently waited them to cool before tasting.
That first bite..OH so good! The gentle crunch of the outer part, the just-soft-enough inside..and YES they melt in your mouth! There's hardly anything left to swallow, lol.
I left some plain because I want to frost them with a buttery confectioner's sugar frosting, then sprinkle with Christmas sprinkles.
For me, this made about 66 cookies.
THANK YOU LOIS! :)
