Expert Tips

  • Chocolate chip cookie mix can be substituted for the sugar cookie mix. Stir some chopped nuts into the dough for an indulgent treat.
  • You can make the cutout cookie the day before the fun begins! Store cookie covered with plastic wrap or foil.
  • Try a variety of sugared gum drops, candy-coated sunflower nuts and cinnamon candies for fun designs and colors.
  • Cut shapes out of the scrap cookie; a star to decorate the top of the tree or squares and rectangles to make gifts to go under the tree.
