  Categories: Diabetic, Desserts, Cooky/bars
       Yield: 36 servings
  
       2 c  Margarine;                          1    Egg;
     1/2 c  Sugar;                              2 c  Flour;
       1 ts Vanilla; extract                    2 ts Baking powder
  
   Cream together the margarine, sugar, vanilla and egg until light and
   fluffy.  Add about 3/4 of the flour and the baking powder, reserving
   the rest of the flour for rolling. Blend until well mixed.  Chill the
   dough for 2 hours or overnight.
   
   Roll out on a lightly floured surface until 1/8 inch thick.  Cut with
   a cookie cutter.  Place on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake in a 375
   degree oven until lightly browned, about 5-10 minutes.  Cool before
   storing. Makes about 72 cookies 2 inch size or 6 small cookie sheets
   of various sizes.
   
   My note:  If you aren't too fussy, square or random shapes from the
   edges can be cut with a plastic knife or anything that is safe to use
   on your rolling surface.  Decorate with a tiny piece of a cherry,
   raisin or nut.
