Sugar Cookies

This cookie dough can be rolled into balls and pressed flat but I'm rolling it out, chilling it and cutting it into shapes.
  • 1 stick Margarine
  • 1/2 c. Oil
  • 1 c. Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 1/2 c. Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 3/4 tsp. Salt
Cream together first 5 ingredients. Then sift next 3 ingredients into mixture. Roll between sheets of wax paper to 1/4" thick. Leave between paper and refrigerate 2 hours. Remove top paper. Cut star shapes with cookie cutter. Remove excess cookie dough. Turn dough and paper upside down on cookie sheet. Remove paper. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with colored sugar before baking or apply icing after cookies cool.
