Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in 1/4 cup of the flour until well blended. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER COMBINING WITH FLOUR.) Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon flour onto work surface; coat all sides of dough with flour. With rolling pin, roll out dough 1/4 inch thick, adding additional flour as needed to prevent sticking.
  • 2
    With floured 2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out stars. Gently brush excess flour from stars; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 3
    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Frost cookies with frosting. Sprinkle with sugar.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you'd prefer a different topping for your Christmas star cookies, swap the coarse white sanding sugar for any colored sugars or decorator sprinkles.
  • tip 2
    Use gel food coloring to tint your frosting any color you prefer.
  • tip 3
    Try topping your frosted holiday star cookies with candies, nonpareil sprinkles or miniature chocolate chips for added flavor and flair.
