Sugar Cookies

{I did the same idea as the other cookies with the webs, I just used Halloween colored M & M's .. I think they are cuter that way!}

1/3 cup margarine
1/3 cup shortening
2 cups flour
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp milk
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt

Mix margarine and shortening together, add 1/2 of the flour and everyting else. Mix well, add remaining flour. Cover and refridgerate for 1 hour.

This is what it looks like when rolling out the dough

Roll out and cut with shapes

bake 375 for 7-8 minutes


2 cups powder sugar
1/2 cup margarine
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp milk

blend well, add more powder sugar if necessary. Use food coloring to add extra fun!

Recipe is from Staci Lyman's kitchen (David's sister)


  1. YUM!!! And I've been inspired to pick up some pumpkin from the grocery store...those pumpkin bars look so good.

  2. I can't keep up with you!
    By the way, our paper said they'll be shortage of canned pumpkin this year--so stock up now. I paid an arm and a leg for my four cans, but the smaller cans were horribly expensive! I just got enough for a few pies and loaves of bread--didn't want to hoard, but wanted to cover our needs. It may also be one of those things that never really happens at all (the shortages).

  3. I sampled the sugar cookies myself today! Thanks Barb they were wonderful! Jordynn and I agreed that they were some of the best sugar cookies we've ever had!
