The recipe is super simple:
1/2 cup soft margarine or butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup flour
Mix using hands in mixing bowl until dough forms ball. Roll into small balls and flatten on cookie sheet. At this point, you can either bake as is and decorate or, what I normally do is flatten them with a glass dipped in cinnamon-sugar or sprinkles.
The icing is out of a tub (Betty Crocker, I think) and the coloured icing is from Cake Mate tubes. (I think it looks more impressive, but I am not remotely Martha Stewart-like)
Anyway, kiddo decorated three on her own, I did the rest. Fun was had and cookies were eaten... and there are still some left!
