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

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix together vegetable oil (yes, 1 1/2 cups of vegetable oil), sugar and eggs. Mix in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, buttermilk, salt and vanilla.
  3. Pour teaspoon-sized amounts of batter onto cookie sheets, leaving plenty of room in between. These cookies will puff up and get large.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

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.

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!!!

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
