Preparation / Directions:
Preheat oven to 375. To prepare dough, combine margarine, egg, one tablespoon milk, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. In another mixing bowl, combine flour, granulated sugar, and baking powder. Mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients just until moistened. Divide dough in half. Cover and chill until easy to handle. On a lightly, floured surface, roll each half of dough to 1/8" thickness. Using 2 1/2" cutters, cut dough into desired shape. Place 1" apart onto unprepared baking sheet. Bake for 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Meanwhile, to prepare icing, combine powdered sugar, remaining vanilla extract, and milk in a small mixing bowl. If desired, color with food coloring. When cookies have cooled spread icing over cookies.
