Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies

1 cup margarine (I mean this! The butter I usually use does not work Use
Margarine or shortening.)
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
1 egg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups flour

Cookie Icing:

3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Chill thoroughly Roll out to 1/8 inch thick and cut into shapes Bake on ungreased cookie sheets at 375° for 10 minutes Cool and decorate as desired.

Trust me about the margarine- I usually use butter in everything but the butter DOES NOT WORK. Use margarine or butter-flavored shortening or your cookies will not be firm enough to cut out.
