dozen cookies

1 1/2
cups powdered sugar
cup margarine or butter, softened
teaspoon vanilla
cups Bisquick® Original baking mix
drops yellow food color
drops red food color
tablespoons baking cocoa

  1. Stir powdered sugar, margarine, vanilla and eggs in large bowl until well blended. Stir in baking mix until soft dough forms. Divide dough in half. Mix yellow and red food colors into 1 half to make orange dough; mix cocoa into other half to make chocolate dough. Cover and refrigerate doughs separately 2 hours or until chilled.
  2. Heat oven to 400°. Roll one-fourth of the dough at a time 1/8 inch thick on floured cloth-covered board. (Keep remaining dough refrigerated until ready to roll.) Cut orange dough with pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter and chocolate dough with cat-shaped cookie cutter. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Make faces on pumpkins and cats with black gel.

Success Hint
When making cutout cookies, always work with a well-chilled dough. Cold dough rolls out easier with less sticking. When rolling out dough, start at the center and roll toward the outside edges.
