  • 1 egg

  • 2 tbsp butter or margarine

  1. Combine all ingredients. Mix well. Chill dough for 2 hours. Roll to desired thickness and use favorite cookie cutters. Bake in 350 degree oven for 7-10 minutes. ICING: Combine all ingredients. It is best to ice the cookies while they are still warm.
  2. If you are doing the lifesaver candy in the center make sure you bake your cookies on parchment paper.
