"Cookie Day" Frosted Sugar Cookies

Recipe from: Betty Crocker Cookie Book & Wilton (but really, from Davie's grandma). Have a rolling pin on hand, or better yet, use a round bottle. Kris used a bottle of balsamic vinegar. ;)


Ingredients

3/4 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon
1 cup margarine
1 1/2 pounds confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk

Directions


Cookies: Beat 3/4 cup margarine and 1 cup sugar until smooth and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat only until mixed. Add flour, baking powder, and salt mixing slowly until just combined. Roll out on floured board and cut with floured cookie cutter. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until just beginning to brown around the edges.

Frosting: Beat 1 cup margarine, confectioner's sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and enough evaporated milk to make a good consistency. Beat 5-10 minutes for a very fluffy frosting. Add color as desired. Use pastry bag to decorate cookies.
