This is my great grandma's recipe for butter cookies. They melt in your mouth. She always used Imperial brand margarine (hence the name) but they work well with butter also. These can be decorated with colored sugars before baking also.
- 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- Cream butter and sugar.
- Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Chill dough before baking.
- Drop by 1/2 teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
- Bake in preheated 300F oven for 20 minutes.
I made these for a cookie tray for my Sunday school class of teens. They loved them. It is a small batch recipe. I made them small and got about 4 dozen. They do take the full 20 minutes at 300 degrees. I decorated them with colored sugar. Note: The dough is soft and would be difficult to handle as cutouts.
A family favorite! Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without these yummy melt in your mouth morsels of heaven. The list of ingredients looks a little funny but TRUST ME they go so well together and just make one amazing cookie. Mmmm mmmm mmmmm. A quick, easy, and painless addition to any holiday cookie tray.
