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 I'm sorry there isn't a link......couldn't get it to work today.


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.)
