      Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Beat the sugar, shortening, margarine,
   egg, flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla extract in a large bowl on low
   speed until blended. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons milk if the dough is too dry.
   Shape 1 level teaspoonful of dough around each hazelnut to form a ball.
   Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes,
   or until set but not brown. Remove from the cookie sheets. Cool completely
   on wire racks. For the glaze, mix the ingredients until the glaze is a
   consistency that will adhere to the cookies without dripping. Roll in
   colored sugar if desired.  Makes 7 to 8 dozen.
