What can be more fun than baking delicious cookies? Eating them, I suppose. Here are some recipes from my vintage recipe collection for easy and delicious sugar cookies. These are perfect for holidays, birthdays, rainy days, or just spending time baking with the kids, other family or friends. So get out those cookie sheets and get them filled some delicious cookie dough. Just imagine the aroma in your kitchen. . . oh, yummy!


1 cup margarine

1 cup vegetable oil

1 cup powdered sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

4 cups flour

1 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix margarine, oil, sugars, and eggs together in a large mixing bowl. Sift flour, cream of tartar and baking soda together. Add to the egg mixture and mix well. Mix in the vanilla. This dough will be very sticky. Divide into 3 equal parts and make into rolls. Put into freezer and allow to freeze. Remove from freezer and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices. Sprinkle with colored sugars, if desired. Bake on a ungreased cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.


1 cup shortening
3 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp soda
5 1/2 to 6 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream shortening. Add sugar and continue creaming until light. Add eggs and sour cream and beat. Sift the dry ingredients together and add to the shortening-sugar-egg-cream mixture. Form dough into walnut sized balls and roll in granulated sugar. Place on greased cookie sheet and flatten with the bottom of a glass. Bake in 350 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes.

NOTE: For holidays, use tiny drops of liquid food coloring in the sugar before rolling the dough balls in it. Red and green coloring is perfect for Christmas, orange for Halloween, orange and brown for Thanksgiving, pastels for Easter, red for Valentine's Day, etc.
