These are the best sugar cookies EVER!
And you guessed it, they're my mother-in-law's recipe.
I've started making them every year for her birthday and this year I wised up and made enough for myself! The best thing about them is that you probably have all of the ingredients already in your pantry. (Maybe with the exception of cream of tarter. What other recipe calls for that?)
Anyway... here ya go!
2 sticks margarine
1 c Wesson oil
1 c powered sugar
1 c sugar
1 t cream of tartar
1 T vanilla extract
1 t almond extract
1 t baking soda
4 1/2 c flour
Sift together flour, cream of tarter & baking soda. Set aside.
Beat margarine, oil & sugar until creamy.
Add eggs. Add vanilla and almond extract.
Add flour and stir until it becomes dough-y :)
Refrigerate dough overnight. Then pinch of pieces and press each cookie (with a glass dipped in sugar) onto an un-greased cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes on 350.
