Soft old fashioned sugar cookies warm out of the oven. You can serve these cookies simple as is, or frost and decorate when cooled. Eileen's original recipe makes a very large batch so when we baked them up we cut the recipe in half. We also used a sugar icing with holiday food coloring. Next time we may even add sprinkles! 


4 c. sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. margarine
2 c. milk
