These cookies were a Christmas tradition when my husband was growing up. They are perfect for cookie cutting and decorating.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the milk and lemon juice in a small bowl; set aside a few minutes to sour. Meanwhile, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in a bowl. Beat the margarine and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat the first egg into the margarine mixture until completely blended, then beat in the vanilla with the second egg. Mix into the flour, then stir in soured milk mixture until just incorporated. Wrap cookie dough in plastic, then freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
  3. Roll dough out on a heavily floured surface, then cut with cookie cutters. Alternatively, the cookies can be rolled into balls, then pressed down with a fork. Arrange cookies onto prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are golden brown, about 10 minutes.

This is a soft, lightly spiced cookie. My friends liked this a lot. A good Holiday cookie and easy to make.

I made these last minute for a cookie swap since I couldn't run to the store to get any special ingredients. To quote my husband and friends, "they aren't bad. They aren't great, but they aren't bad either." They just are. This recipe is fine if you need a cookie recipe and only have a few ingredients at home, but I will not be saving it for future use.

The first reviewer is on the spot. Lightly spiced and soft, easy to make! Just thought I would add another review that it's a good cookie. I liked it with frosting for a little kick but it is good by itself with a glass of milk. :) Made these to give to friends and family. So far no complaints. :P
