1 Cookie Dough 3 ways

This is the peak of multi tasking heaven for me when I can make one dough and produce three different types of cookies. This is not rocket science I understand but what a time saver! Plus each type of cookie pleases someone in my family and surely someone you are making cookies for.

I started off with Michelle's Soft Sugar Cookies recipe from www.allrecipes.com. The title holds true; these cookies are soft for days after (if you can keep them in the house that long).

I made M&M, Snickerdoodle and plain ol' Sugar cookies. This make about 60 - 70 cookies.
Happy baking!

1 cup margarine
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
optional: 1 cup cinnamon sugar, M&M candies


  1. Cream the margarine and add the sugar gradually. Beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at time, mixing well after each addition.
  2. Stir in the vanilla. Add the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt gradually to the creamed mixture, stirring in by hand. Cover and chill dough overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Roll dough out on a floured surface to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick and cut into your favorite shapes. Place cookies onto the prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 6 to 8 minutes or until cookie has a golden appearance.
