Reindeer Cookies

Any sugar cookie recipe will do for these cookies, but here's one that's good. It's the decorations that make them fun.

1/2 c. margarine/butter, softened
4 oz. cream cheese
1 1/4 c. powdered sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp.
vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
3 c. flour

Oven 350 degrees
 Combine butter, cream cheese, and p. sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla, salt, and baking powder. With mixer on low, add flour until dough holds together. Make it into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill at least 1 hour.
On lightly floured surface, roll dough 1/4 inch thick and cut into triangle shapes. Bake 15 minutes until edges brown lightly. Cool completely.
Frost cookies with chocolate icing. Break pretzel loops off and set them along top edge for antlers. Add candies or dots of colored frosting for for eyes and noses.
