I found this recipe in allrecipes.com and was originally posted by Laura... Though it's just my 2nd time to bake I was surprised that it turned out great... the cookie alone was delicious! my advise is to find a good hiding spot for them for decoration 'coz they'll be gone in no time... * I used royal icing to decorate.

Directions

  1. Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs and flavorings and mix well. Stir flour, baking powder and salt together. Add to batter and mix well.
  2. CHILL 3-4 hours or overnight before using.
  3. Roll cookies out approximately 1/4 inch thick and insert cookie sticks at least 1/3 to 1/2 way into cookie.
  4. Bake cookies at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 8-10 minutes. This dough keeps well in a covered container in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks.
  5. Decorate as desired. Display 3-7 cookies in a 6 inch clay pot (depending on size of cookie). Weigh pot down with dried beans and cut a circle of Styrofoam to fit snugly into top. Add ribbons and enjoy.
