Hi, Kristi in the Rada Kitchen, and today we’re going to make easy Santa Cookies. It’s a festive way to celebrate the holidays!
First, freeze 1 package cookie dough for 1 hour. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cut the frozen dough into quarter-inch slices. Place the slices 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. This Rada Stoneware Cookie Sheet never needs pre-seasoning. Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool for 2 minutes and remove cookies from the sheet. Allow another 5 minutes to cool completely. In a bowl, 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons softened butter, and 3 tablespoons milk. Beat until smooth. Place half the frosting in a small bowl and add 3 drops of red food coloring. Frost the top half of the cookie with red frosting to make the hat.
Frost a white semi-circle on the bottom of the cookie to form a beard. Use a small amount of frosting to attach chocolate chips for eyes and a mini M&M or cinnamon candy for the nose. Gently press coconut into the white frosting for the beard. Press 1 miniature marshmallow into the frosting to create the end of Santa’s hat.
