2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 tsp
almond extract
2 tsp
baking soda
2 tsp
cream of tartar
5 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large mixing bowl; cream the powdered sugar and margarine till fluffy.
2
Add eggs one at a time mixing well, add in extracts, soda, crm of tartar and mix well.
3
Add in flour mixing in 1 cup at a time, till all has been added.
4
Dip out with a teaspoon and roll into a little ball; lay on cookie sheet and flatten out with the bottom of a glass, that has been dipped in granulated sugar. (spray the bottom of the glass with cooking oil spray for the first time, so sugar will stick to glass)

I now use a cookie scoop to dip out the dough then roll into a ball. Bake at 375* for 7 min.! Let cool on tray just a minute or so before removing; so they can firm up a little... Enjoy!
