Blue Ribbon Sugar Cookies

READY IN: 2hrs




  • Preheat oven to 350°. Mix margarine and sugar and beat till fluffy. Add egg and extracts. Mix in soda and cream of tartar, and then add flour. Wrap in a disc and chill for at least an hour, but no more than 24 or it will dry out.
  • Roll to 1/4" thickness and cut with desired cookie cutters. Leave room between cookies on baking sheet ( I use parchment) because they do spread. Bake 8 minutes till set, but not browned.
  • Frost with cream cheese frosting, or any other flavor if you like, and decorate with sugars or decors.
  • Note: Since every oven varies, it may be a good idea to bake a few at first to determine how long a batch will take in your oven. Underbaking will cause cookies to break, and overbaking will make them crispy.
