These are soft, cake-like cookies, best with frosting. Roll them out thickly, and bake no more than 8 minutes. They will stay soft, and everyone raves over them. I use them as cutouts for holidays.

Directions

  1. Cream together the margarine, sugar and eggs. Stir in vanilla, flour, baking soda and salt.
  2. Roll out (not too thin) and cut into any shape. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 8 minutes.
  3. I have used confectioner sugar frosting, or buttercream frosting, or even canned frosting ( if I'm desperate). Enjoy!

I have made these 3 times and each time had great results. Rave reviews too! I did use butter instead of margarine. I really like the fact that you don't have to refrigerate them before rolling - a real time saver!!

These were great. Probably some of the best cookies I've ever made. I did a couple of things different. I used cake flour as opposed to all purpose. I dropped them top first into a mixture of sugar and cinamon before setting them on the pan. And finally, I didn't shape them. I simply chilled the dough and used a tablespoon to drop blobs of them onto the pan. They came out very light, fluffy and cakey. I will make them again.

Absolutely the BEST "sugar" cookie we have ever tried! Sililar to the soft butter cookies from the grocery store bakery and almost identical to the fudge topped Berger's Bakery cookie in Maryland!! Don't know what John did to mess them up (poor review)- but bet he would change his mind if they were made correctly- YUMMMMMM! All 8 of my kids beg for these to be made- we top them with marshmellow fudge.
