Passed down from my great-grandmother, whose family came to Oklahoma from Sweden in the land runs . . . These cookies will virtually melt in your mouth with each bite of flaky, soft, sugary perfection.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream the margarine/butter, shortening and sugars until smooth. Then add eggs and vanilla and mix until well blended.
In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients and blend. Then add this mixture, a little at a time, to the bowl of wet ingredients until you have a nice, smooth, cookie batter.
From here you have a couple of choices:
Grandmother liked to roll the dough into small, one-inch balls and then roll them in an additional layer of powdered sugar (pictured).
I prefer to make them as drop cookies without the extra calories of the extra powdered sugar (trust me, they are perfectly sweet without).
Place them on lightly greased cookie sheets. They will spread a bit so give them an inch or so on each side for spreading as they cook. Cook at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes for chewy cookies; 10-12 minutes for crunchier. Enjoy!!
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!

In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
