Recipe Ingredients:

1 (18-ounce) package NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Sugar Cookie Bar Dough, well chilled
All-purpose flour
Colored sugar or sprinkles (optional)
Decorator candies and icing (optional)
Melted chocolate (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven according to package directions.
  2. Cut dough in half; refrigerate one half. Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon flour onto work surface and over remaining dough. 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 baking sheets with spatula; place about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with colored sugar. Repeat with remaining dough half.
  3. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 1 minute; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. Decorate as desired.
