The title says it all. Everyone who has ever tasted these has asked for the recipe. Don't be alarmed at the amount of flour, it is correct. The dough is pretty thick.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time mixing well after each.

Space cookies at least 3 inches apart.

I was looking for a soft cake/cookie and this recipe was PERFECT. I love these cookies. I did add a little more sugar and some vanilla flavoring and they turned out great. They aren't super sweet by themselves, but that makes the icing compliment them really well.


oh this was a disaster! it was simple enough to make, i added some vanilla and almond extract because i figured they'd be bland otherwise. the dough was gooey when i finished, but i tried anyway. the cookies didn't flatten or spread out at all. they just puffed up, so i had these big, round cookies. they had an icky, crumbly, dry, dense texture and tasted like absolutely nothing. i can't believe how many people got good results. maybe i did something wrong. either way, this was the worst cookie disaster i ever had. i had to throw out all the cookies-- so many ingredients wasted!


I hated these cookies. They didn't flatten at all, so I had big round ball cookies. They also had really no flavor, kind of like a ball of moist flour. I almost threw the batter out, but since it was cold in the house I decided to keep the oven running and cook the rest of them as a treat for our 3 dogs. I just wish I hadn't used up my ingredients!
