If I post a recipe, it’s because it’s divine! My second favorite cookie is the sugar cookie, especially with sugar crystals. Oh happiness! My most favorite cookie is the Mexican Wedding Cookie. I had to post this sugar cookie recipe. With the holidays ahead, you will want to give this one a try! The best!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and 2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients until just blended. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls and roll the balls in remaining 1/4 cup of sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets and flatten slightly.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned at the edges. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
