These tasty Gingerbread cookies are fun to make, decorate and eat, or simply be made to add some holiday flair. To use as a tree decoration, make a hole with a drinking straw at the top of the cookie prior to baking. After baking, tie a loop of nylon fishing line or yarn through the hole for easy hanging. No matter what you choose to do, everyone will want to get involved!
- 1 tub (36 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Gingerbread Cookie Tub Dough
- All-purpose flour
- Easy Cookie Icing (recipe follows)
- Decorator sprinkles, cinnamon candies, sugars (optional)
PREHEAT oven to 350º F. Sprinkle flour onto work surface.
ROLL dough to 1/4-inch thickness, using additional flour as needed to prevent sticking. Cut with 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with trimmings.
BAKE for 7 to 8 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. (Smaller cutters and sharp edges tend to produce darker cookies.) Cool for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Decorate as desired. Store in tightly covered container.
FOR EASY COOKIE ICING:
COMBINE 2 cups sifted powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in small bowl. Stir in additional milk, a teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency. For colored icing, tint with food coloring. Makes about 2/3 cup.
