Key Ingredients


  • 1 package (16.5 ounces) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Bar Dough, well chilled
  • All-purpose flour
  • Decorator sprinkles
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon milk, plus extra to reach desired consistency
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Food coloring (optional)

Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325° F.

Step 2

Sprinkle flour onto work surface. Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness, using additional flour as needed to prevent sticking. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Transfer cookies to ungreased cookie sheets with spatula.

Step 3

Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until light brown around edges. Smaller cutters and sharp edges tend to produce darker cookies. Cool on baking sheets for 1 minute; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Decorate as desired.

Step 4

For Easy Cookie Icing: Combine sifted powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon milk and vanilla extract in small bowl. Stir in additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached. For colored icing, tint with food coloring.
