Make and share this Easy Old-Fashion Sugar Cookies recipe from Food.com.
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon milk
- Cream margarine; add sugar, beat until fluffy.
- Add egg and vanilla, stir in flour and milk. ( You may need to add a little more milk or flour to get the best consistency to roll out).
- Roll into two logs, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate.
- When ready to bake, just slice into thin slices. Bake at 350' for 5 to 7 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned; tops will be slightly moist.
These are WONDERFUL! So easy and they taste amazing! If you cut them really thick and top with vanilla frosting, they will be GONE at a party!
These turned out pretty good. I also did not have self-rising flour and added 2 tsp baking powder as Chef #591579 suggested and it worked well. I used earthbalance butter in place of the margarine and soymilk for regular milk. I dipped these in a sugar/cinnamon mix before baking and were tasty. Thanks. Edit: I've also had success freezing half of this recipe for a later time. I just take it out of the freezer and into the fridge to thaw. This time I made it with sprinkles on top and they were not only pretty, but tasted great!
These came out perfectly! I'm a terrible baker and a picky eater, so when I say perfect, I really mean it. (I made these because I had left over ingredients from pumpkin muffins that did not turn out well at all--I made those because I had left over ingredients from a pumpkin pie that turned out worse.) I had 1% milk and whipped butter. I rolled the dough into tin foil and put it in the freezer as someone else suggested, and I left it in there about 20 minutes. I cut 26 cookies, but I had to let them cook 16-18 minutes. Even then, the tops still looked white. The bottoms turned out a perfect golden brown, and they were perfectly cooked through, soft and chewy. This was so easy.
