Irish Flag Cookies

1 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar

In a large bowl, cream together butter and confectioners' sugar.
Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Mix well.

In a medium sized bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda and
cream of tartar. Blend into the butter mixture. Divide dough into
thirds and shape into balls.

Working with 1/3 of the dough at a time, roll out dough to 1/4 inch
thick on a floured surface. With a knife, cut dough into rectangles
about 2 inches high by 3 inches long. (6 x 8 cm).

Place rectangles on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake
in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven until lightly
browned. Cool completely on wire rack.

Frost cookies with Irish Flag Frosting. Make a 1 inch green stripe
on the the left side of the rectangles and a 1 inch orange strip
on the right side, leaving the middle one inch unfrosted. Makes
3 dozen.

This recipe was excellent to make. The dough was very plyable and easy to handle. I have a picture of my cookies, but I couldn't get it to load correctly. These are excellent for children to make also.
