Paul Bunyan Sugar Cookies

Paul Bunyan? Yes, the mythological, giant-sized logger with his bright blue Ox named Babe. These cookies are fit for any giant or logger because they are cut out from the opening of a coffee can! I am not sure how long this recipe has been around in our family, but I know I have been scarfing them down since I was old enough to slobber.

This is another recipe that was used at my wedding, and I sure hope you take the time to try them! Just don't go draggin' any axes around - We don't need another Grand Canyon!

Paul Bunyan Sugar Cookies
(Valentine's themed)

Cream together:
1 1/2 cups margarine (try it with butter, or half butter/half marg.)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 T vanilla
2 T milk

Sift and add:
4 cups of flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. of salt

Chill for at least one hour. This is crucial. Bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes. Watch them as you bake and try them soft and crunchy. My family's favorite way is browned around the edges for a crunchy cookie.

  3. Yup. Same cookie recipe. I used all margarine this time for a "cakey" cookie. I was thinking it would be better with the buttercreme frosting. Personnaly, I like them made with butter instead. They turn out much crispier around the edges, Mmmm....
