roll Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
1/4
cup all-purpose flour
1
container (1 lb) vanilla creamy ready-to-spread frosting

  • 1 In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until well blended. Reshape into log; separate into 2 halves. Wrap in plastic wrap. Place in freezer about 30 minutes or until very firm.
  • 2 Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Cut half of cookie dough into 16 slices. On cookie sheet, arrange 15 slices, 1/4 inch apart, in shape of mitten. (See diagram.) Roll remaining slice of dough into log; place on side of mitten; flatten to form oblong shape for thumb.
  • 3 Bake 8 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Remove parchment paper with cookie from cookie sheet. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Remove paper from cookie.
