Baking holiday cookies is fuss free when you get a little help from a Betty Crocker® cookie mix.

Ingredients

1
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
3
tablespoons Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/2
cup butter or margarine, melted
1
egg
1
container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy creamy white or Whipped fluffy white frosting
Betty Crocker™ decorating icing (assorted colors), if desired
Betty Crocker™ decorating sprinkles and sugars (assorted colors), if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, flour, melted butter and egg until soft dough forms.
  • 2 On floured surface, roll dough to about 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with about 2 1/2- to 3-inch cookie cutters. On ungreased cookie sheets, place cutouts 1 inch apart.
  • 3 Bake 6 to 9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 4 Spread frosting on cooled cookies. Decorate as desired with icing, sprinkles and sugars. Store cookies in tightly covered container.

Expert Tips

For directions for making your cookies into ornaments, search for the Holiday Cookie Ornaments recipe.

Cut cookies with a cutter dipped in flour or powdered sugar. Cutting shapes as close together as possible on the rolled dough helps you avoid rerolling the dough scraps (rerolled dough will be a little tougher).

Roll dough to an even thickness by rolling between clean wooden dowels or rulers of the same thickness.

If using 20% more cookie mix, add 1 tablespoon water with the mix, butter and egg.
