Directions:
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Beat egg and vanilla in a mixing bowl and add sugar slowly beating to mix well. Add oil, a little at a time, alternately with water beating until smooth. Add half the flour mixture and beat until smooth. Stir in remaining flour mixture. Chill well so that dough handles easily. Turn dough out on a lightly floured board. Knead lightly about 5 turns or until smooth. Roll out half the dough at a time about 1/8" thick. Cut with a floured Santa cookie cutter. Place 1" apart on greased baking sheets. Bake in a moderate oven 350F 10 min or until golden brown. Remove from pans. Cool on a rack. Decorate with icing, candies, coconut and sugar.
