Due to popular demand re my earlier post today, I reveal the mysteries of this cookie. Or biscuit. Depending on where you live.
Here is the recipe for Sugar Cookies:
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
5 cups of flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 cup margarine or butter
1 cup salad oil
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Mix margarine, oil, and sugars. Add eggs, then dry ingredients. Roll into small balls and press down on ungreased cookie sheet with a glass dipped in sugar. Bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes.
I used Martha Stewart Holidays sanding sugar in red instead of regular sugar.
I couldn't find a photo of Martha's but you get the idea.
Oh, and by the way, Mr LC says they taste like fish. Guess what he's getting for Christmas.
