Nutritional Facts

1 Christmas tree (calculated without decorations) equals 241 calories, 12 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 8 mg cholesterol, 171 mg sodium, 33 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 1 g protein.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place cookie dough in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature 5-10 minutes to soften. Beat in vanilla. Add flour; beat until blended. If desired, tint green with food coloring.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Using a floured 2-in. scalloped round cookie cutter, cut out 18 cookies. Repeat with 1-1/2-in. and 1-in. scalloped round cookie cutters and a 5/8-in. star-shaped cookie cutter.
  3. Place colored sugar and sprinkles in separate shallow bowls. Dip tops of stars in colored sugar to coat. Roll edges of scalloped cookies in sprinkles. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake 6-9 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  5. If desired, tint frosting green. For each Christmas tree, place a 2-in. cookie on a work surface. Pipe frosting onto center of cookie; top with a 1-1/2-in. cookie. Repeat with additional frosting and a 1-in. cookie. Attach a star cookie to the top using additional frosting. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
