Comment on this recipe

These are super delicious and very easy, especially for everyone that works a full day away from home. Your house will smell so wonderful when you walk through that door!

Ingredients

5 - 6 Cups of flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups of margarine or butter
2 1/2 cups of sugar
6 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla
Frosting:
1 package of powdered sugar (1 pound package)
1 stick of margarine
1/4 cup of milk
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla flavoring

Instructions

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside In a large bowl, cream together margarine and sugar. Add eggs, beating well. Stir in vanilla. Add dry ingredients, mixing well. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour. Roll out dough on a flour covered cloth. (I also use a pastry stocking on my rolling pin)The dough is very sticky, so make sure your rolling pin and pastry cloth are lightly covered with flour. Roll out dough to 1/8-inch and cut out dough with cookie cutters. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375degrees for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool cookies. For frosting, cream margarine and sugar; add milk and vanilla. Beat well. Frost cookies and decorate with sprinkles.
