Trail Blazer Sugar Cookies by Marjorie Galinski

Trail Blazer

Sugar Cookies

Our neighbor Margie makes some really delicious cookies. She says the recipe makes 7 dozen cookies but the recipe can easily be cut in half. Some seven years ago she clipped the recipe from a regional Oregon newspaper and, as you can see, has been perfecting the recipe ever since.

After some urging, she entered the cookies in the local fair and was rewarded with a blue ribbon.
