Sugar Cookies

Friday my kids and their friends decorated turkey cookies. I made the cookies with my Mom's recipie, but I cheated and bought the frosting. I got home with the yellow squeeze tub and had forgotten to buy the tip that goes with it, we improvised with a ziploc baggie.

1 c. margarine
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
4 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
4 Tbsp. milk

Cream shortening & sugar. Add eggs & flavorings. Stir in dry ingredients and milk. Chill mixture in fridge at least 1 hour. Roll dough out to 1/4-1/2 inch and cut cookies to desired shape. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
