Sugar Cookies

These are a multi-purpose cookie. Typically, we make them for holidays and special occasions and cut them into holiday shapes, and ice them with brightly colored icing.


3/4 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt


Cream together margarine and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Sift together remaining ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Cover; chill in refrigerator for 1 hour. Place dough on floured surface. Roll out to 1/8-inch (approximately) thickness. Cut into desired shapes. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 6-8 minutes, or until golden brown.
