Sugar Cookies For Decorating


- 1 lb. margarine, room temp

- 3 c. granulated sugar

- 4 large eggs

- 1 T. vanilla

- 1 t. orange emulsion* or 1 T. orange zest

- 7 c. flour

- 2 t. baking powder

-1 t. salt

1. Cream Margarine and sugar. Add eggs and flavorings and mix well.

2. Stir in flour mixed with baking powder and salt. CHILL at least
2 hours I recommend overnight.

3. Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes but you all know
the time really depends on your oven. In my oven it takes about 13 minutes.

Also this dough will keep well in a covered container in the refrigerator
for a couple of weeks!

* I used this orange bakery emulsion from Lorann Professional Kitchen.
An emulsion is a flavoring supply that is preferred over extracts because
emulsions have a more potent, robust flavor, that won't bake out when
exposed to heat and they are also alcohol free. If you don't have an
orange emulsion use the orange zest which i love because of the slight
orange flakes that you can see in the cookies but instead of buying
flavorings now i suggest you look for emulsions. Enjoy!
