  • 1 cup (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup PLUS 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) , divided
  • 2 large
  • 1 tsp.
  • 3 cups


  1. Beat Becel® salted margarine sticks with 1 cup (250 mL) sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla until blended. Gradually add flour and beat on low speed until blended. Divide dough in quarters; wrap in plastic wrap and flatten into disks. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F (180° C). Remove plastic wrap from dough. Roll each quarter about 1/8-in. (3 mm) thick on floured surface with floured rolling pin. Cut dough into shapes with 2-in. (5 cm) cookie cutters. Arrange on ungreased baking sheets, 1-in. (2.5 cm)apart. If dough becomes too soft, return to refrigerator to firm up.
  3. Sprinkle with remaining 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) sugar.
  4. Bake 10 minutes or until edges are just golden. Let stand 1 minute on wire rack; remove cookies from sheets and cool completely. Decorate as desired, below.
