Thanksgiving is over and it’s time to start thing more about Christmas cookies, or Hanukkah cookies. These with their blue sprinkles I think would work for both holidays. With all the potlucks and holiday parties this time of year, we don’t always have time to look for that perfect recipe, that’s when I turn to classic tried and true recipes like these holiday stars. It’s a classic Pillsbury recipe that’s very popular.

These are super simple to make too. You just start with a tube of Pillsbury sugar cookie dough. Next you roll out the dough, cut out the stars and bake.

After they have completely cooled, just frost them with some white icing. For these, I used white cake frosting from a can.

Holiday Star Cookies

Ingredients:

1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
1/4 to 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Ready-to-spread frosting (any white variety)
Coarse white sparkling sugar, if desired

Directions:

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in 1/4 cup of the flour until well blended. Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon flour onto work surface; coat all sides of dough with flour. With rolling pin, roll out dough 1/4 inch thick, adding additional flour as needed to prevent sticking.

With floured 2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out stars. Gently brush excess flour from stars; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Frost cookies with frosting. Sprinkle with sugar.
