Quick Sugar Cookies
From: Hillbilly Housewife
- 1/2 cup soft margarine or shortening
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 medium egg
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon almond flavoring (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1-1/2 cups flour
If desired, you can color the dough with food coloring for special occasions. You can also form them into small balls and roll them in a little granulated sugar right before baking.
I love this recipe because it is so easy to prepare. I think it goes together even faster than most cookie mixes. It is cheap and easy too, costing only about 50¢ to 60¢ for the whole batch. If desired, this recipe can easily be doubled.
We doubled this recipe. I used my BIG cookie scoop for the 1st batch. Decided after that to use my small cookie scoop and then smash the balls down. They worked really good. These tasted really good, and were much easier than rolling out sugar cookie dough! The kids liked decorating them.
