Pillsbury makes a very good refrigerated cookie dough roll. I've baked with it 100's of times for youth group activities and many times as a base for cookie dough pizza desserts for many adult groups. I have never had a complaint about the quality of the dough. Maybe it was because I intended to share something tasty with my friends. I have a huge recipe box of recipes for cookies from scratch and I make them to serve as well. Collecting recipes does not make whatever you bake all that great if #1 you are not really into baking and #2 your too proud to buy what you really want.

I have made this before, but with a little more sophistocated design, this one is more for children to make. I have cookie cutters in 7 graduated sizes. A taller stack of the stars, makes it look like a tree, then I decorate with some white icing to make it look like it has snowed and make ornaments with buttercream or royal icing.

auntsis59, look at the pic . . . the star-shaped sugar cookies resemble a Christmas Tree when stacked in the alternate sizes! It takes the star shape to make it look like a tree.

Wow what a concept. Cut out 3 stars and stack them on top of each other. Even my three year old looked at the results and said it's stars on top of each other. Please a little creativity. Plus the sugar cookies taste like cardboard and preservatives.

That's unfortunate pss1955, I use them all the time and have never had a problem. It sounds like you are using well chilled dough.. are you flouring your rolling surface well?

To auntsis59 - - you cut out a bunch of stars that get gradually smaller, then stack them up slightly askew from the one under it - - the finished result is a Christmas tree made from star cookies - really really cute!

I'm a little confused. The name of the recipe is Sugar Cookie Trees, and yet the picture shows stars, not trees. What's that all about?

When I use the sugar cookie rolls to make cut out cookies, they don't hold their shape at all. I have tried using them 2 years in a row & even chilling the cut out cookies prior to baking, but they still don't hold their shape.
