Directions:
Mix sugar, margarine together-add egg and flavorings. Mix dry ingredients. Stir into sugar mixture. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Roll out on floured board. Cut into holiday shapes. Bake at 375 seven to eight minutes. The cookies get golden brown on the bottom, but don't look done on the top. Remove from the oven anyway. Cool and frost if desired. Sometimes I put candy sprinklers on top before baking.
