This is a great recipe for roll out cookies.

Thick Sugar Cookies
2 cups margarine or butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
6 cups flour
3/4 tsp. salt
4 Tbsp. milk

Divide dough in half (or sixths). Chill 1 hour. Roll out half of dough 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Use greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes.
These can be frosted. Makes about 5-6 dozen standard-sized cut-out cookies.

Buttercream Frosting for the sugar cookies
1 1/4 cup Crisco shortening (only use Crisco)
2 lbs. powdered sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp Karo light corn syrup
1 tsp butter flavoring
1 tsp vanilla

Beat 5 to 10 minutes with a power mixer until very smooth. Water down a small amount for a crumb coat if frosting a cake. After 20 minutes (when set), frost with remainder of frosting. When set, use paper towel or typing paper to set desired surface texture. This is fluffy enough to frost easily, yet stiff enough for keeping its shape for decorating.

I have a great drop sugar cookie recipe also. Let me know if you want it.
Happy baking! ~-~

    Creamy Icing
    In a small bowl beat 1 egg white, 2 teaspoons lemon juice or vanilla. and enough powdered sugar [1 1/2 2 cups] to make icing of piping consistency. Spread icing on cookies, let dry. If desired, add a drop or two of food coloring, spoon into a zipper style plastic bag, forcing the icing to the corner. Make a small hole in the corner and use to pipe decorations onto cookies.
