  • 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.
