  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar. Add eggs and beat until fluffy.

  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Dissolve the baking soda in the buttermilk and add alternately to the margarine mixture with flour mixture.

  • Roll out dough and sprinkle with nutmeg. Cut with a biscuit cutter. Dough will be very soft and delicate.

  • Bake until lightly browned around the edges. A really soft, chewy cookie.
