Fun Idea

This easy-to-make cookie dough can be used to prepare several types of festive cookies for your holiday gift baskets. Try several of the crowd-pleasing favorites below.

Variation

Substitute 4 rolls crushed ring-shaped hard candies (44 candies) for the colored sugar. To crush candies, separate candies by color. Place 1 color in resealable plastic bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet. Repeat in separate bags with remaining candies. Cut out cookies, place on baking sheets and bake. Immediately press about 1/2 tsp. of the crushed candies into top of each hot cookie.

Pinwheel Cookies

Prepare dough as directed; divide in half. Add 2 oz. melted BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate to half of the dough; mix until well blended. Divide each half into 2 equal parts. (You should have 2 white and 2 chocolate pieces.) Roll or press 1 of the white dough pieces into 10x8-inch rectangle on lightly floured surface. Break 1 of the chocolate pieces into smaller pieces; place on rolled-out white dough and press gently to form even layer. Starting from 1 of the longer sides, roll up dough tightly to form log; wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining dough. Refrigerate 1 hour. Heat oven to 350°F. Cut dough into 1/4-inch-thick slices; place on baking sheets. Bake 10 to 12 min. or until lightly browned. Makes 24 servings, 2 cookies each.

Snowmen Cookies

Heat oven to 350°F. Prepare dough as directed; shape into equal number of 1/2-inch and 1-inch balls. (You should have about 44 of each size ball.)
