  1. Beat confectioners' sugar and margarine together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla extract and beat until smooth.
  2. Whisk 2 1/2 cups flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and baking soda together in a separate bowl. Beat flour mixture into creamed butter mixture on medium-low speed just until dough is combined. Separate dough into 2 balls and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Dust dough with flour and roll into 1/4-inch thick pieces on a work surface. Cut cookies into desired shapes using cookie cutters and arrange on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are just beginning to turn brown, 10 to 14 minutes. Let cookies rest on baking sheet, 5 to 10 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool.

I made these with about two table spoons of applesauce. It gave it just enough moisture to really bond it together. They cook really quick and spread out a lot. Yummy!

Followed the recipe and made vegan frosting to top them off! Delicious! Definitely will make again!

nice, not too sweet cookies. My dough was too crumbly so I added about 1/2 cup of warn water after it cooled for 3 hours.

I made it without cheese. Absolutely amazing. This will be on my regular meal rotation from now on.

They turned out much better than expected day of. All of the 9 kids loved decorating them and they held up well. Very hard the next day and pretty crispy about two hours out of the oven but a po...
