Fall leaf cookies

I love this sugar cookie recipe. The best part about it is you don't have to refrigerate the dough before using cookie cutters!

1 cup margarine
1 large egg
2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups plain flour
Food coloring

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Cream margarine and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer
-Beat in egg and vanilla, add baking powder
-Add flour one cup of a time-blend last cup of flour by hand. Do not chill dough.
-Divide dough into the number of colors you would like to use. Mix food coloring in to each individual ball of dough
-Take pieces of the colors you want to use and place beside one another and then roll out
-Use cookie cutter and tear away excess dough
-Add more dough of the colors you want to use and cut out shapes. Repeat until all dough is used
- Bake on middle shelf of oven for 8 mins or till lightly brown. Watch very carefully to make sure they don't over cook!
