1 cup Margarine
1cup Granulated Sugar
1 cup Powdered Sugar
1 cup Oil
1 tsp Vanilla
4 cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
Mix margarine and sugars together. Add eggs and beat well. Add oil and vanilla and beat again. Mix dry ingredients together then add to other mixture. Form a round ball, press flat with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Bake 12-15 minutes @ 375 degrees.
My Notes:: Butter is an option for these cookies, but they are better with margarine. This recipe makes about 5 dozen cookies. The dough is soft, soft soft, fluffy. It gets a bit tedious with the glass/sugar method so I have also refrigerated the dough and used a scooper, dropping balls of dough into a sugar bowl, coating before putting on the tray. This method is much quicker and the cookies come out more uniform. This is NOT a recipe for roll and cut cookies. These cookies are light and soft, crumbly after a couple days. Perfect as is, also very good frosted, but dont expect to shape them.
I'm an irreverent, snarky, sarcastic woman with heavy OCD tendencies. Etiquette be damned, I will say what I think without filtering it. Generally loving and caring, I do have a black-white personality so if you piss me off, expect to hear about it and be hated forever more. Or at least for a long time.
I've been told I have high standards and that I strive to too perfect of goals. That being said, I believe in a home birth, non-vac, non-circ, extended breastfed, attachment parent, home-school way of life.
I sew home goods rather than buy them; I garden and preserve; I bulk shop and freeze, including a modified Once-A-Month-Cooking plan. I love all kinds of crafts especially those dealing with paper.
You can talk to me about make up, hair styles, fashion and trends but my eyes may glaze over and my mind might wander. I'm not focused on looks, wear what feels good rather than what looks good, and never follow a trend.
I am both a hard right conservative and a hard left liberal. I don't like to discuss politics and religion because of this... and the aforementioned "don't piss me off" suggestion.
I am an avid reader of thrillers, crime novels, historical fiction and pandemic books. I do not read chick-lit or romance novels as a rule.
Currently residing in the Midwest, my heart belongs in Southern California where I spent nearly 2 decades.
