Soft Christmas Cookie Recipe

Recipe from Georgie B.


3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup margarine, softened

1 1/2 cups white sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together, set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Gradually blend in the sifted ingredients until fully absorbed. Cover dough, and chill for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. On a clean floured surface, roll out small portions of chilled dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes using cookie cutters.

Bake 6 to 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are barely brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

Whip these up and watch everyone’s face light up when they see how soft and delicious they are.
