Musical Instrument Cookies

Yield

Makes about 2 dozen cookies

Ingredients

1 package (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
All-purpose flour (optional)
Assorted colored frostings, colored gels, colored sugars, candy and small decors

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheets.
  2. Remove dough from wrapper according to package directions. Divide dough into 2 equal sections. Reserve 1 section; cover and refrigerate remaining section.
  3. Roll reserved dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle with flour to minimize sticking, if necessary. Cut out cookies using about 3-1/2-inch musical notes and instrument cookie cutters. Place cookies 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
  4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven. Cool on cookie sheets 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
  5. Decorate with colored frostings, gels, sugars and assorted decors as shown in photo.
