You can make your own frosting or save some time by using one you purchase at the store. Sometimes time is tight & you gotta do what you gotta do to get the job done!

I used vanilla cream cheese frosting.

Frosted Holiday Star Sugar Cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 9 minutes

Total Time: 19 minutes

Yield: about 20 cookies

Frosted Holiday Star Sugar Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® Refrigerated Sugar Cookies
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Ready-to-spread frosting (any white variety) I used Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Coarse white sparkling sugar
  • Red Non Pareil Sprinkles
  • Sweetened Coconut Flake
  • Optional
  • 1 teaspoon Almond Extract

Method

  • Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. (If you like almond you can add that optional ingredient now.) Stir or knead in 1/4 cup of the flour until well blended. 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.
  • 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. (I used 2 sizes for variety, but baked them all for the same length of time.)
  • 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. Dip in bowls filled with sugar, sprinkles and coconut.
