Pillsbury™ Cookie Dough

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Ready to Bake!™ Sugar Cookie Dough (24 Count)
  • 12 multicolored large gumdrops
  • 1 cup white cookie icing (from two 7-oz pouches)
  • 1 tablespoon white sparkling decorating sugar
  • 6 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups miniatures, unwrapped and cut in half
  • 48 brown M&Ms® Minis® milk chocolate candies
  • 3 small orange gumdrops, cut into 24 small triangular pieces
  • Pretzel sticks (broken into small pieces), if 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
    To make gumdrop snowman hats: With rolling pin or hands, roll large gumdrops 1/4 inch thick. Cut thin strip from bottom; press sticky cut side onto bottom of hat to make brim; set aside.
  • 4
    Using photo as a guide, pipe about 2 teaspoons cookie icing onto cookie to look like a “pool” of melted snow; sprinkle with about 1/8 teaspoon decorating sugar. Immediately add peanut butter cup half (cut-side down) or gumdrop hat, chocolate candy eyes, gumdrop nose and pretzel arms. Let stand until set, about 1 hour.

  • Substitute chocolate peanut butter bell-shaped candies, cut in half, for the peanut butter cups or gumdrops for hats. You can also use candy eyeballs instead of miniature M&M's® candies for the eyes. Experiment and pick your favorites!
  • Get the kids in the kitchen to help decorate these festive treats! Have all your ingredients prepped and ready to go before decorating.
  • For best results, bake one cookie sheet at a time in the center of the oven.
  • Cookie icing sets up quickly; for best results, be sure to work in small batches.
  • Store cookies covered at room temperature up to 3 days .
