Ingredients

pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
1/3
cup butter or margarine, melted
1
egg
2
tablespoons Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
Betty Crocker™ red and green decorating gels
  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, egg and flour until dough forms.
  • 2 Roll dough on floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Decorate unbaked cookies using gels.
  • 3 Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet; cool completely, about 20 minutes.

Expert Tips

Cut cookies with a cutter dipped in flour or powdered sugar--unsweetened baking cocoa for chocolate dough--as close together as possible on rolled dough to avoid re-rolling (re-rolled dough will be a little tougher).
