What You Do:
1. For the cookies, preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat together margarine, sugar, water, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add remaining ingredients and stir well to form a smooth dough. Cover and chill for 1 hour or until firm.

2. Divide dough in half, work with one half at a time, and keep the remaining dough covered. On a floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters, and carefully transfer cookies with a spatula to ungreased cookie sheets.

3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool slightly before transferring to a rack to cool completely before decorating with frosting. 4. For the frosting, in a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly for 1 to 2 minutes until smooth. Decorate cookies and serve.
