    Decorated Sugar Cookies

    List of Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    1 cup margarine, softened
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    1 egg
    2 1/2 cups flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon cream of tartar
    egg yolk and food colors


    Mix powdered sugar, margarine, vanilla, almond extract, and egg. Stir in remaining
    ingredients except granulated sugar. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours.

    Heat oven to 375. Divide dough into halves. Roll each half 3/16 inch thick on lightly floured
    cloth covered board. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place on lightly greased
    cookie sheet.

    Mix egg yolk and 1/4 teaspoon water. Divide mixture among several custard cups. Tint each
    with different food color to make bright colors. Paint designs on cookies with small paint
    brushes. Bake 7 to 8 minutes and edges are light brown. After removing from oven, sprinkle
    granulated sugar on them.
