Pearl Sugar Cookies.fixed.5

Welcome to Day 2 of my Christmas Cookie collection! If you missed them, yesterday I shared my recipe for Graham Cracker Log.

Today I’m sharing Pearl Sugar Cookies with you. This recipe comes from my sister, Jayne, many years ago. This recipe has lots of margarine, sugars and flour, but it also makes lots. I will be freezing some to save for Sunday, when I will be hosting the Drop In & Decorate get together with some friends.

Pearl Sugar Cookies


  • 2 sticks Margarine
  • 1 c. Oil

  • 1 c. Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 4 c. Flour
  • 1 t. Cream of Tartar
  • 1 t. Soda
  • 2 t. Vanilla
