    1      tsp           baking powder
    1      tsp           baking soda
      1/4  tsp           salt
    1      c             margarine

 blended, then eggs and vanilla.  Add flour mixture; beat until well blended.
 If necessary chill dough.  Shape into 1inch balls.  Place 2 inches apart on
 ungreased cookie sheets.  Flatten slightly and decorate with candied cheeries,
 or flatten with fork dipped in colored sugars.  Bake in 350 degree oven 12
 minutes, or until lightly browned.  Remove from cookie sheets and cool on a
 rack.  Makes 6 dozen.
