a cut out sugar cookie

1 cup sugar
1 cup margarine or butter
3 tablespoons sweet sherry
1 egg
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons anise seed crushed or 1 teaspoon anise oil or flavoring
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugar and margarine, sherry and egg
in a large bowl. Stir in the remaining ingredients except the 1/4
cup sugar and the cinnamon. Divide dough into two balls. Roll out
each ball to 1/4 inch thick and cut into any shape with cookie
cutters. Place on ungreased sheet. Mix together the sugar and
cinnamon and sprinkle on the cookies before baking. Bake 10-12
minutes until golden.

These cookies are cute made into a cactus shape. Pinch off balls
of dough, one larger than a quarter and 2 the size of a nickel.
Roll each of the balls between your palms to make cigar shape.
Flatten the large one to make the main stem of the cactus. Bend
one third of each of the two smaller ones to make a J shape and
attach them at uneven intervals on each side to make the arms.
Flatten them to match the trunk and bake.
