This is the BEST sugar cookie I have ever eaten, and it’s a no-roll type of cookie so you don’t have to refrigerate the dough and wait til it’s firm! The kids can all join in this one, even the very smallest. Hope you use this one often and enjoy it as much as we do!

Makes 48 cookies

  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. margarine or butter(best)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour (don’t use self rising)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tarter
  • Granulated sugar for dipping glass.

    Beat sugar and butter until fluffy. Add beaten egg and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients together and add to sugar and butter mixture.
    Roll into small walnut sized balls, place on very lightly greased cookie sheet about 1-1/2 inches apart. Press out with the bottom of a glass that has been dipped in granulated sugar. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.
    Let the cookies get as dark as you want them, ideally they are pale yellow with a touch of light brown around the edges.
