- 1 cup margarine (2 sticks)
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 5 cups bleached flour (sifted)
First, combine the margarine and sugar into a large bowl.
Add eggs and vanilla, mix.
Next, add salt, baking soda, and nutmeg. Mix together.
Add 1 cup of buttermilk and sift 5 cups of flour into sugar mixture.
For best results, chill the dough before you roll it out. I stuck mine in the freezer for a few minutes.
Preheat oven to 375.
Roll out dough half inch think and cut 3 1/2 inch diameter circles. Sprinkle sugar on top and bake for 10-12 minutes.
When they come out, they should be fluffy. These are so delicious, I can't stand it!!!!
My hubby loves chocolate, so he convinced me to add some chocolate chips to a few. They were okay. They tasted like a chocolate chip muffin, instead of a chocolate chip cookie. The real deal are the BEST!
Finished product! Enjoy!!!!
