I gave this recipe 5 stars. I love this recipe these cookies are so good and easy. I got my copy of this recipe in school from home ec. class. The copy I have is slightly different. It calls for 3 cups flour, 1 Tsp salt, 2 eggs, and 1 1/2 Tsp vanilla. The recipe also calls for different things to mix-in and make different cookies. Cookie Tarts: Spoon 1 Tsp jelly or preserves onto half of the slices: top with remaining slices. Seal edges. Cut slits in tops so filling shows. About 3 1/2 dozen sandwich cookies. Crunchy Peanut Cookies: Substitute 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter for 1/2 cup of the margarine and packed brown sugar for the granulated sugar. Nut Cookies: Mix in 1/2 cup chopped blanched almonds or black walmarts with the flour. Orange-Almond Cookies: Mix in 1 Tbl grated orange peel with margarine and 1/2 cup chopped blanched almonds with the flour. Thanks for posting such a yummy recipe! Christine (internetnut)

I made these exactly as directed with one notable exception. I added a teaspoon of dried rosemary. The results were absolutely delicious - not too sweet, with a subtle rosemary flavor. They're really outstanding. Thanks for a wonderful recipe. UPDATE: I just made them again, with the addition of the rosemary, and they're better than I remember. Thank you so much for posting this outstanding recipe!!!

I made these the other day and my family just loved them. My DH thinks they are the greatest cookies I have made. I might try sprinkling with sugar before cooking. Definitely will be making these again. Think I will make a few batches and freeze for holiday season.

These are really good cookies. i had trouble with the dough because I mistakenly added al the flour mixture in at once instead of gradually, although I'm not sure if that made much of a difference. I also had no time to freeze them so I made them right away. With that being said the cookies do taste better the next day, especially if you put them in the freezer for several hours.

I'm so happy to find this recipe! They are the cookies my mom always made for Christmas, but then lost the recipe to. They aren't the fanciest cookies, but they are good and very convenient. I added 1/2 t. vanilla with the egg. I sprinkled them with colored sugar (recipe from this site) before baking. I only had to bake them for 5 minutes, but I only have a toaster oven (I'm in China). Thanks for this recipe!
