1 ½ cups powdered sugar
1 cup margarine or butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon almost extract
1 large egg
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

Divide dough in half. Roll each half ¼ inch thick on lightly floured surface. Cut into desired shapes with 2- to 2 ½ inch cookie cutters.  Sprinkle with granulated sugar. Place on cookie sheet.
Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
Makes about 5 dozen.
