I’m blogging the recipe primarily so I’ll quit losing it. My mom got it from a college roommate of hers, I think. If you like sugar cookies that just taste like sugar cookies (no almond, lemon, etc.), then this is the recipe for you.
1 lb margarine (seriously DO NOT use butter)
2 c sugar
3 t vanilla
6 c flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
Mix, roll, cut, and bake at 400 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes.
Use as little extra flour to roll and cut them as possible and don’t roll the dought out more times than necessary.
And speaking of recipes….last time I was at my mom’s, we made some salsa that she found by clicking over to one of you readers’ blogs. It was called Finch Family Salsa and it was delicious, but she can’t remember where she copied it from. If it was you, THANKS!
