Butterless Vanilla Cookies
Submitted by: D. C. Nelson
Story behind this Recipe:
This recipe is from my great-grandmother Bertha, who was originally from the Ukraine. No-one knows where she found the recipe; she stored it in her head until my grandmother asked her to write it down. To this day I regret not paying attention more when she was speaking Yiddish, since I knew her in the good old days during the critical period.
These are extremely addictive, so make lots.
Ingredients:
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
4 eggs
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups flour
1 heaping tsp baking power
Units: US
Serves: N/A
Cooking Instructions:
Beat together oil, sugar, and salt. Then add vinegar, vanilla, and eggs one at a time. Stir in baking powder. Stir in flour, beating until the stiffness of the dough makes it impossible to keep going. Roll out thinly 1/8 inch thick, and cut into shapes. (Dinosaurs are my favorite). Decorate with sprinkles, cinnamon or chocolate. Bake at 400°F for about 10 minutes, until just barely golden.
Makes several dozen cookies. These cookies store well in plastic bags.

They were interesting. Not the best, plain. But they grow on you.

Jessica Martinez:
I used lemon extract instead of vanilla extract and I really enjoyed these. They're super easy to make and they DO make a lot fo cookies. Glad I didn't double the recipe! Lol.

I halved the recipe, and added 1/8 cup of dried peaches. I chopped the dried peaches and added it into the oil-egg-sugar mixture. turned out really nice and yummy.

we made these cookies because we had no butter and they were easy to make. turned out to be a very bad decision because they tasted like paste and they smell like pig fat. don't waste your time making theses i even tried putting chocolate chips in them but did not help at all...
