Every one has their own X-mas cookie recipe. I have many, but this is the first holiday recipe I learned how to make. It was fun & easy to make, even my borthers help me make them. As long as I make about 3 dozens cause they eat every other one they decorate LOL....
1First pre-heat the oven to 375F. In a medium bowl, stir the cookie mix, flour, butter & egg until a soft dough forms. Then on a floured surface. Roll the dough about 1/4 inch thick. Then cut with a 2 1/2to 3 inch cookie cutters. Place them on a ungreased cookie sheet. Make sure to place about 1 inch apart from each other.
2Next bake for about 7 to 9 min or until the edges are a light golden brown. Remove from oven & let cool 1 min on cookie sheet. Then place on a cooling rack. Let cool completely for about 15 mins.
3Then spread the frosting on each cooled cookie. Decorte as you wish withthe icing. Sprinkle the sugar & store cookies in a tightly covered container.
