my aunt makes these sugar cookies that are kind of thick, not hard at all, soft, and they melt in your mouth! anyone have a sugar cookie recipe that is similar to that? thanks for your help!
I used to have a recipe that I called "cloud cookies" and they were exactly like you described. I lost it years ago but I know that it had sour cream in it. Maybe you could Google a sugar cookie recipe with sour cream?
Are they a roll out type cookie?
If not, try this recipe.

Thanks for the recipe, they sound really yummy!
Cookiemookie - you are awesome! I think you had said before the Wesson Vegetable Oil is the one to use, not Canola. Did I get it right this time?
Cookiemookie - My mom used to make sugar cookies with these same ingredients, except only 1/2 cup of oil and only 1 tsp. baking soda and cream of tartar. Otherwise, exact same recipe. I have to say that they are my favorite sugar cookies because they do melt in your mouth. I haven't tried cutting them out because I think they'd be too soft. Have you tried cutting them out? I always thought my beloved mom "invented" this recipe.
