Time for Sugar Cookies!

This recipe is very versatile since it can be made for any holiday or occasion. You can dress them up however you like; frost them, sprinkle them, cut them in multiple shapes and sizes or just eat them plain. Luckily this cut-out sugar cookie does not need to be refrigerated before rolling out and cutting as many other recipes direct you to do. So you will go from craving the cookies to enjoying them in no time!

Sugar Cookies

2/3 cup Soy Margarine
1 cup Unrefined Cane Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 Tb Cornstarch
2 Tb Water
2 cups Unbleached White Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder

Cream together the margarine and sugar. Mix together the cornstarch and water. Add this along with the vanilla to the sugar mixture. In a separate bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Slowly mix in the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, careful not to over mix. Roll out dough and cut with cookie cutters. Bake at 350ºF for about 10 minutes.
