Thanksgiving Baking

sprinkling confectioners sugar on cookies
     It's that time of year again.  The aroma of pies and cookies baking are in the air.  I got an early start on my thanksgiving baking by making these old fashion vanilla cookies.  It's a very simple tasting cookie that is quite a contrast to the rich tasting pies that I usually make for the holidays.
3/4 cups of sugar                  1 1/4 lbs of flour
2 sticks of margarine             3tsp  baking powder
4 eggs                                    1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp of vanilla                       1/4 tsp salt
preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cream margarine and sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla.  In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients.  Add dry ingredients to egg mixture.  Take a heaping tablespoon of dough and roll out about 4-5 inches and make into an S.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Cool on rack.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
