Updated April 28, 2021

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Ready to Bake!™ Sugar Cookie Dough (24 Count)
  • 1 pouch (7 oz) red cookie icing
  • 1 pouch (7 oz) green cookie icing
  • Assorted M&Ms® Minis® chocolate candies, as desired
  • Assorted holiday sprinkles and colored sugars, as desired
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups white or milk chocolate miniatures, unwrapped and cut in half, as desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased large cookie sheets.
  • 2
    Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool on cookie sheets 2 minutes; remove to cooling rack to cool completely.
  • 3
    Using photo as a guide, pipe cookie icing onto cookie tops. Immediately add chocolate candies, sprinkles and sugars. Add peanut butter cup for ornament top. Let stand until set, about 1 hour.

  • For the best control, cut a small tip from the cookie icing pouch before decorating. It helps to pipe a border of icing around the outer edge of the cookie, then fill from the center outward. The icing sets up quickly, so be sure to add sprinkles right away before it dries.
  • Use multicolored small gumdrops or Rolo® chewy caramels in milk chocolate in place of the mini peanut butter cups for the ornament top, if desired.
  • For best results, bake cookies one sheet at a time in the center of the oven.
  • Store cookies covered at room temperature up to 3 days .
