Stars and Stripes
- 1 (18-ounce) package NESTLÉ®
TOLL HOUSE® Sugar Cookie Bar Dough, well chilled
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
Easy Cookie Icing (recipe Follows)
- Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
- Sprinkle flour onto work surface. Roll
out dough to 1/4-inch thickness, using additional flour as needed
to prevent sticking. Cut into star shapes with cookie cutters.
Transfer cookies to ungreased baking sheets with spatula.
- Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until light
brown around edges. Smaller cutters and sharp edges tend to produce
darker cookies. Cool on baking sheets for 1 minute; remove to
wire racks to cool completely. Pipe, spoon or spread red, white
and blue icing onto cookies to create stripes.
- For Easy Cookie Icing: Combine 1 cup sifted
powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon milk and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
in small bowl. Stir in additional milk, a teaspoon at a time,
until desired consistency. Set aside one-third of icing. Divide
remaining icing between two bowls. Add red food coloring to one
bowl and blue to the other; stir well.
Makes 24 cookies.
