Enjoy these decorative sugar cookies that can be ready in an hour – perfect for a dessert.
Updated Sep 21, 2020

Ingredients

  • 1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated sugar cookies
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Colored sugars or decorating icings and gels, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.Cut well-chilled dough in half. Refrigerate remaining dough while rolling first half. Sprinkle work surface with flour; coat sides of dough with flour. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER COATING DOUGH WITH FLOUR.) Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness, adding flour as needed to prevent sticking.
  • 2
    Using 3- to 3 1/2-inch hand-shaped cookie cutter dipped in flour, cut hand shapes. If decorating with colored sugars, sprinkle over hand shapes. Place shapes 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Refrigerate cutouts on cookie sheet for 15 minutes before baking to prevent the "fingers" from baking together.
  • 3
    Bake 8 to 11 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; carefully remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Decorate as desired with sugars, icings or gels.
