1 cup margarine or butter, softened
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup milk
3 3/4 cup flour (I use 4 cups plus some. I think the dough is to runny without it)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, mixed with 3 Tablespoons
Mix the margarine and sugar together in a mixing bowl until creamy. Add the eggs, vanilla, and milk, and mix until smooth.
In another bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Add the flour mixture to the margarine mixture. Mix well.
Roll dough into small balls and place them on a cookie sheet. Dip the bottom of a drinking glass in four, and use it to press the balls of dough into circles about 1/4 inch think. Press 5 slivered almonds on each cookie so the look like sand dollars. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Bake the cookies at 375 degrees for 7-10 minutes.
