Ghost Cookies

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
16-ounce can pre-made vanilla frosting
colored sugars, for decoration
mini-morsels, for decoration
candy sprinkles, for decoration
black or brown decorating frosting, for decoration

Beat butter and shortening at medium speed with an electric mixer
until blended. Add powdered sugar, egg, and vanilla to butter
mixture; beat well. Gradually add flour, cream of tartar, and baking
soda, beating well.

Cover and chill dough 1 hour. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness,
and cut with a 4-inch ghost-shaped cutter. Place cookies 2 inches
apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Place a craft stick under
each cookie, pressing cookie lightly onto stick.

Bake at 375F for 10 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.
Cool cookies on baking sheets 5 minutes; remove to wire racks to
cool completely.

Microwave frosting in a 2-quart glass bowl at HIGH 1 minute or
until frosting melts. Spread melted frosting over cookies in batches
of 3. (Frosting hardens quickly.) Decorate rapidly with desired
toppings. Yield: 2 dozen.
