Butterine Cookies

Comment on this recipe

My dad had a Butterine route during the Depression. Butterine is the same as margarine.

Ingredients

1 pound butterine (margarine)
2 cups sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
5 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons hot water
1 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

Cream butterine and sugar together. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Mix flour, salt and baking powder; mix water and baking soda. Add flour mixture to the sugar alternately with soda mixture and mix well. Roll into small balls and flatten with a fork dipped in flour, sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350 degrees in the middle of the oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until done.
