    Brenda.'s Note:

    These Sugar Cookies are marvelous! Light, Crispy, Yummy and so easy. I got this recipe from a co-worker many years ago. Dieters beware--it is hard to eat just one. Tip-I have tried to substitute margarine in place of the butter, and the cookies were not as good. I have also used colored sugars for dipping the glass into for the holidays and that worked very well. Not recommended for rolled out cookies as the dough is too delicate.

      The only complaint I received about this recipe was that I didn't double it. I got exactly 24 cookies from the recipe, divided between the five of us. They were all gone in just a few minutes! I can't wait to make these again (doubling the recipe of course!). Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      These are very rich. I did reduce the amount of oil by about a tbs. **Edited to say that these are best when they have cooled. When they are still warm, the almond extract is a bit overwhelming. I really loved the texture and simplicity of these cookies. Thank you! Made for ZWT5 & Dining Daredevils.
