World's Best Sugar Cookies

These cookies undoubtably live up to their name. I will tell you, though, that I didn't name them. They are Matt's Na Na's cookie recipe. They are the best sugar cookies I've ever had- and I am no cookie rookie. I didn't get to 198 lbs eating broccoli and tofu. They feel so light and melt in your mouth. Unlike most cookies though, they are better when cooled and not hot.

They are two WW points each and 97 calories. Even though the nutrition isn't that bad, I wouldn't make them unless you have company because you will eat them all. Trust me I know. Na Na sends them in the car with us on the hour and a half drive between Heber Springs and Little Rock. My hips send their thanks. :) The recipe below is actually 1/2 of the original recipe because these are too dangerous to have for long. The listed recipe makes ~36 cookies. (Complete nutrition information below.)

1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
