Roll out cookies

This recipe has been in my family for years!! It is great for the kids to use cookie cutters with, and ice afterwards.

Roll out cookies


  • 1 cup margerine
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 1/2 – 4 cups flour (until not sticky)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Cream margerine and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla.
  2. sift together dry ingredients. Form into two balls. Wrap in plastic wrap and refridgerate for at least 2 hours. Can be refridgerated for up to 5 weeks. Roll out thin, at room temperature.
  3. Cook @ 350 for 11-13 minutes.
  4. Ice after cooled.
  5. I love taking only a little bit at a time and cooking them when I want them. Fresh cookies all the time!!

Do you need to flour the surface? And wait untill it's room temp from fridge then roll out? Sorry if Im not understanding :)
