These are very similar to the sugar cookies my grandma makes. I used butter instead of margarine since I don't buy margarine. These roll out very nicely and are sturdy enough to frost, even for the little ones. Mine were baked in 7 or 8 minutes, but I think its because they were a little thinner than suggested.
