Soft Rolled Sugar Cookies

I thought I would share the recipe for Soft Rolled Sugar Cookies. I was given this recipe by a friend, Jeannette. We was visiting with her and her husband, Steve one evening when she served these cookies. They were so good!!!!!!!! I swear that Rich ate at least a dozen and a half of the cookies that night. Jeanette asked if I would like to have the recipe. That was 20 years ago and Rich can never get his fill of these cookies.

Instead of rolling them out I pinch off dough and roll into balls about the size of a walnut. Then I place the balls on cookie sheet and press with the bottom of a glass...the one I use has a pretty design on the bottom. Then I sprinkle with plain or colored sugar and bake. The secret to these cookies being soft is the amount of baking time. DO NOT OVERBAKE!

I'm sharing this recipe on http://grocerycartchallenge.blogspot.com/ I'm sorry there isn't a link......couldn't get it to work today.

SOFT ROLLED SUGAR COOKIES

1 cup soft margarine
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 1/2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir flour with baking powder and salt; blend into creamed mixture.

Divide in half. Cover; chill 1 hour.

On lightly floured surface roll each half to 1/8-inch thick. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters.

Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE!!!!!!!!!

Makes 13 dozen cookies (I don't get that many when I roll them into balls.)
