"This cookie is a very soft sugar cookie that is made with a batter rather than a dough, but is really good." — Heather Newcomer

These are great fluffy cookies. I used 1 cup margerine and 1/2 cup olive oil because that is what I had. I also used regular milk instead of buttermilk. I topped them with sprinkles. They are a hit.
This is cake. For the love of God. And I don't mean 'it's a piece of cake.' It is a cake recipe. The Amish Sugar cake recipe is nearly identical. Please, if you truly are craving cookies in your dorm room on a cold October night, please DON"T MAKE THIS. It was a waste of ingredients and time, and now we have to go to the store to get cookies.
Tried this recipe this morning. It makes A LOT! Next time I might scale down the recipe. The cookies turned out wonderfully - soft and fluffy! I sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar. I actually live in Lancaster County, PA, and I have to say, these are very very close to what you might buy at Amish markets or country stores! :D
These cookies are just like the ones my Grandma taught me to make except she used more flour (5-6 c flour) and rolled out the dough. She always cut big round cookies using a upside down glass and topped each cookie with some sugar. Biggest thing to remember ***DO NOT overmix the dough or you will have rubbery/tough cookies*** Thanks for sharing the recipe. YUM!!!
If you are looking for a soft melt in your mouth sugar cookie this is NOT it. If you are looking or something with the texture of a rubbery pancake with a little flavor you have you match. I have never thrown away a batch of dough after the first two sheets, but this wasn't worth scraping of the pan. Sorry.
I still make this recipe as my hubby and I love this recipe so much as do friends that I give this to when I share the cookies with. they cannot believe how soft they stay in the container and how soft they are to begin with. Plus i even sprinkle them with sugar before i bake. plus if you make these christmas just sprinkle before you bake with color sugar, what a holiday feel.
My 9 year old daughter made these and they turned out great. I halved the recipe because I didn't need that many cookies! Besides that the only change we made was to sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the cookies before we baked them. A powdered sugar glaze might be good over them as well once cooled....
I thought that the nay-sayers were just being mean, but these cookies are indeed strange. I followed the recipe, but I certainly didn't get anything that I could pour. I got an oily, soft dough, which I spooned up and patted into rounds. They baked in about 8 minutes, but they never spread, even a bit, and they didn't puff. I can't say that they're awful, but they certainly aren't tasty, either. They're bland. Very bland.
