tea-cookies-836118-mYields about 24 cookies

1 1/2 cups margarine or butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extra
¼ tsp salt
1 cup powdered sugar
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, sifted

With an electric mixer, beat sugar, butter and salt until creamy. Then beat in the vanilla extract. Slowly add the sifted flour and beat with a wooden spoon until well blended.

Half the dough, flatten each half and wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Heat oven to 350° Fahrenheit. On a floured surface, roll one half of the dough to about ¼” thickness and cut out your favorite spring shapes – flowers, bunnies and more. Arrange the shapes on an ungreased baking sheet and chill about for about 15 minutes. In the meantime, roll out the remaining dough and repeat procedure.

Bake the cookies for about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before transferring the cookies to a wire rack.

Decorate the cookies with pastel color icing and allow to stand until the icing is firm and dry.
