3/4 Cup butter

1 Cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon salt (optional)

Your choice of candy for decorating the cookies


Mix butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Blend in flour and baking powder and salt. Cover and chill one hour. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Roll dough 1/8" thick on floured surface. Cut as desired. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.

For the frosting mix powdered sugar and milk to your desired consistency. Create an array of fall colored cookies using food coloring in the frosting mixture. Or, decorate the cookies to look like pumpkins and kittycats using your creativity.
