Decorated Sugar Cookies

Decorated Sugar CookiesThink you don't have time to make holiday cut-outs? Ready-made cookie dough takes much of the work out of making cut-out cookies. Decorating them with the kids can be lots of fun, too!

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (18-ounce) package NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Sugar Cookie Bar Dough
All-purpose flour for sprinkling

Easy Cookie Icing:
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk, plus more as needed
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Few drops food coloring (optional)

Decorator sprinkles, as desired

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. Sprinkle flour onto work surface. Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness, using additional flour as needed to prevent sticking. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Transfer cookies to ungreased cookie sheets with spatula.
  3. 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. Decorate as desired.
  4. For Easy Cookie Icing: Combine powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in small bowl. Stir in additional milk, a teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency. For colored icing, tint with food coloring.

Makes 2 dozen cookies.
