Expert Tips

  • For best results, bake cookies one sheet at a time in center of oven.
  • It’s helpful to pipe a border of cookie icing around edges of cookies before icing the rest of the surface to keep icing from sliding off sides.
  • Decorate these fun sugar cookies with cookie icing, decorating candy decors, miniature candy-coated chocolate candies, sprinkles, colored decorating sugars or nonpareils and more! Cookie icing is sold in pouches and can be found in the baking aisle of the grocery store.
  • Be sure to work quickly when adding decorations, as icing sets quickly.
  • Have an ugly Christmas sweater cookie decorating party (while wearing ugly Christmas sweaters, of course). Vote for your favorite cookie and award a prize, or enjoy your cookie as your prize!
