pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Stir cookie mix, butter and egg in medium bowl until soft dough forms. On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 3 inches apart.
  2. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  3. Frost and decorate one cookie at a time. Spread frosting on 1 cookie. Add licorice across top third of cookie for hat, 3 raisins for eyes and nose and 5 candies for mouth. Repeat with remaining cookies.

Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
When you have lots of cookies to bake and just 1 or 2 cookie sheets, pick up cooking parchment paper near the aluminum foil at your supermarket. Just tear off the length of paper you need to cover your cookie sheet and place it curled side down on the cookie sheet. When cookies have baked, just slide the baked cookies along with the parchment paper off the cookie sheet onto the cooling rack. In no time, you'll have a cooled cookie sheet ready for the next batch.
Time Saver
Remember that assembly lines can make tasks go faster. Line up your kitchen helpers. One person frosts cookies, the next adds the licorice for the hat, and the third person adds the raisins and cinnamon candies. Another time, let each person be as creative as they want with their own set of cookies, frosting and trimmings.
