2 c Margarine;
1/2 c Sugar;
1 ts Vanilla; extract
2 c Flour;
2 ts Baking powder
Cream together the margarine, sugar, vanilla and egg until light and
fluffy. Add about 3/4 of the flour and the baking powder, reserving
the rest of the flour for rolling. Blend until well mixed. Chill the
dough for 2 hours or overnight.
Roll out on a lightly floured surface until 1/8 inch thick. Cut with a
cookie cutter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 375
degree oven until lightly browned, about 5-10 minutes. Cool before
storing. Makes about 72 cookies 2 inch size or 6 small cookie sheets
of various sizes.
My note: If you aren't too fussy, square or random shapes from the
edges can be cut with a plastic knife or anything that is safe to use
on your rolling surface. Decorate with a tiny piece of a cherry,
raisin or nut.
