325 deg. 25 minutes

1 cup marg., cream thoroughly

Sift 4 times- 1/2  cup cornstarch, 1/2 cup icing sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt, 2 cup sifted flour.

Add dry ingredients to creamed marg. and turn on lightly floured board.  Knead till it begins to crack. Never refrigerate.   Add green colouring now,  a really deep green, or not. Roll out 1/4″ thick, cut out leaves, using a cookie cutter.

Optional: I would also add that you could omit the green food colouring, but before you bake the cookies, brush them with beaten egg white and sprinkle green sugar on top.
