1 stick butter, softened
1 stick Land O' Lakes margarine, softened
1/2 c + 2 T sugar
2 1/2 c all purpose flour
Cream butter, margarine and sugar. Add flour and mix well. Mixture will be crumbly.
Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill well.
Preheat oven to 325 F. On a floured surface ( I use part powdered sugar so as not to make the dough tough), roll dough out to 1/8" thick. Cut shapes.
Place cookies on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for about 7 minutes, sprinkle with granulated sugar and return to oven for anther 6-7 minutes. Cookies should be very lightly brown.
These are fragile, so handle them with care when removing from baking sheets and packaging them.
