There are several reasons why I like these cookies:
- Spoon them straight from the mixing bowl onto the cookie sheet (NO rolling and cutting) and enjoy super easy cleanup.
- No special ingredients need to be purchased. This recipe is made with things you probably already have.
- The cookie is light and soft, yet slightly chewy, which is a good thing!
- Since it is, in fact, made with a few standard pantry items, it is inexpensive. I haven't calculated the actual cost, but I might do that out of my own curiosity later on.
- They are quick to mix up (5 minutes) and bake (10 minutes).
Without further adieu, here is my recipe:
Tanya's Sugar Cookies
2 Cups sugar
1 1/4 Cup margarine
3 Cups self-rising flour
1/2 Teaspoon salt
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together sugar and margarine in a mixing bowl with mixer. Add salt and eggs and continue until mixed. Turn off mixer and add flour, mixing by hand until batter is smooth. Drop 12 evenly spaced walnut sized spoonfuls of dough onto each cookie sheet. Bake 9 - 10 minutes or until edges appear slightly brown. They may still appear a bit under-baked on top when they first come out of the oven, but this is okay. They will firm up in a matter of minutes. Enjoy with a cold glass of homemade sweet tea. The recipe for that can be found HERE!
Have a fun, frugal and fabulous evening, from our house to yours!
