Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 36
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

1/2  cup  Margarine
1/2  cup  Sugar
1  teaspoon  Vanilla extract
1    Egg
2  cups  Flour
2  teaspoons  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.
