  3. 3 Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until light golden brown; cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  1. Chocolate chip cookie mix can be substituted for the sugar cookie mix. Stir some chopped nuts into the dough for an indulgent treat.
  2. You can make the cutout cookie the day before the fun begins! Store cookie covered with plastic wrap or foil.
  3. Try a variety of sugared gum drops, candy-coated sunflower nuts and cinnamon candies for fun designs and colors.
  4. Cut shapes out of the scrap cookie; a star to decorate the top of the tree or squares and rectangles to make gifts to go under the tree.
