I've given this as gifts many times and had it confirmed these really are the best cookies ever.
If making for a gift: In a 2-liter jar, layer the dry ingredients in the order in which they appear in the recipe. Cap the jar and decorate with ribbon. Be sure to jot down the baking ingredients below the dry ingredients (butter, eggs and vanilla) and the recipe below, and include it as part of the gift.
Combine the unsalted butter, eggs and vanilla and mix in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients and mix well.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Roll cookie dough into 2 inch balls. Bake for 6 minutes on ungreased cookie sheets. These cookies turn out best if a little underdone.

Mix these ingredients and beat until smooth and fluffy.
Mix thoroughly and add to beaten ingredients. Shape the dough in to a long roll. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate. When well chilled, cut into thin slices. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees F. Place dough in refrigerator during baking, while waiting.
Hi.. what is the "soda" you mention? Is is baking soda, or soda you drink? (11/21/2004)
"Soda" in the dry ingredient list would OBVIOUSLY be baking soda. (11/22/2004)
valleyrimgirl: No need to be SO condescending to Kim. Perhaps she is someone just learning to cook. At least she had enough sense to ask before she did it wrong. Isn't that what this site is about - to help out others? Get over yourself. (11/22/2004)
In her defense I too wondered about the "soda" in this recipe! I am glad someone asked this question~:) (11/23/2004)
Hi, Baking soda for those outside the country is bicarbonate of soda or "bicarb" in the UK. Soda is also what we call carbonated beverages like Coke here in the U.S. It's also called Pop or Soda Pop. Soda is also the name for an old Soda Fountain drink with flavored syrup and carbonated water so it's easy to get confused. We'll try to watch for that in future recipes. (11/23/2004)

Thank you Robin. I have copied several of your recipes. (02/08/2005)
I too was wondering about the soda thing. No I wasn't but anyways you people have to get over yourselves like mrsmutt mentioned. I bet all of you have made a mistake in your recipes so leave this person ALONE. (03/03/2005)
Would like more Christmas recipes. (08/07/2005)
Oh and now I learned not to push the back button or it posts twice. I'm going to go lie down before I hurt myself. (08/25/2005)
If you add a 1/4 cup of skim milk and about 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon for 15 minutes made with an ice cream scooper these cookies come out like bakery specialty cookies. (08/28/2005)

Beat margarine, sugar, eggs, water, and vanilla. Sift together dry ingredients (all but oats.). Mix with sugar mixture. Mix well. Blend in oatmeal and drop by teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Add chopped nuts, raisins, chocolate chips or coconut if desired to your dough.
Mix all dry ingredients and break up the sugar well. Pour into the mix all the wet ing. and mix well. Mixture is sort of sticky. Drop spoonfuls of mixture on cookie sheet (Use parchment paper for easy clean up!) and shape into a cookie by giving it a little pat on top. Put into a 375 degree F oven for about 15 minutes.
Remove from oven let them cool and then sprinkle them with powder sugar.
Hmm Hmm Yum!
