FOLLOW the mixing directions on the NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Cookie Baking Mix with Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels.
ON a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, roll the dough out to about 1/2 inch thick rectangle, leaving room along the edges for it to expand when baking. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove and let cool for about 15 minutes. Press the cookie cutters into the large baked cookie to get the perfect cookie shape!
PLACE the cookies on a clean sheet of parchment paper and using a toothpick, put a small pinhole towards the top center of each cookie. In a double broiler or microwavable bowl, melt the white morsels.
DIVIDE the white morsels into 3 bowls (one to leave white, one to dye pink and one to dye orange). Add 1 to 2 drops of red or pink food coloring into one of the melted white morsel bowls and stir. Then, add 1 or 2 drops of orange food coloring into one of the other melted white morsel bowls and stir. Do not add too much as the melted morsels will clump if you do!
Dip the bottom of the cookies in the pumpkin spice, white and pink melted morsels bowls. To get the layered look, dip one side, let it dry and then dip the other side. If the melted morsels start to harden, microwave it for another few seconds.
LET the cookies dry completely before adding the string to the top. Hang on a tree for a festive chocolate chip cookie centerpiece!
