   Recipe by: Betty Crocker’s Cookbook
   Mix powdered sugar, margarine, vanilla, almond extract and egg. Stir in
   remaining ingredients except granulated sugar. Cover and refrigerate at
   least 2 hours.
   Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease cookie sheet lightly. Divide dough in
   half. Roll each half 1/4-inch thick on lightly floured surface. Cut into
   desired shapes with 2 to 2-1/2-inch cookie cutters. (Cut no more than 12
   cookies at a time to keep them from drying out.) Mix egg yolk and water.
   Divide mixture among several custard cups. Tint each with different food
   color to make bright colors. (If paint thickens while standing, stir in
   few drops water.) Paint designs on cookies with small paintbrushes. Place
   on cookie sheet. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are light brown; cool.
