By day twelve, we will have made approximately 400 Christmas cookies that can be shared with family and friends.

So let’s begin, tie on that favorite Christmas apron, gather your supplies, have helpers on hand, and let’s start with a recipe that has just three ingredients, making it extremely quick and simple, and one your children and grandchildren will enjoy getting involved with. In approximately one hour you will have your first batch of twelve Christmas cookies finished. Remember to keep your camera handy to take pictures of your baking event.


  • 1 Pkg. (13 oz.) Pillsbury’s ready to bake, Christmas tree sugar cookies.
  • ¾ cup vanilla frosting, (pre made)
  • Candy sprinkles

Christmas cookie sandwiches

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make the cookies according to package directions. Cool completely, at least 15 minutes or so.

 Step 2

Spread 1 tablespoon of frosting on the plain side of your baked cookie. Top with a second cookie, bottom side down of course; gently press together giving you a picture on both outer sides, with a little frosting squished out. Here is where the children have fun. Take your sandwich cookie and gently roll the cookie’s frosting edge into your favorite sprinkles, and that’s it!


Tint your frosting by using different food coloring colors, also have a variety of sprinkles for you or the children to choose from, and make more than one design of the prepackaged cookie dough, now giving you many cookies with a variety of looks and colors.

Best part about this recipe is that it can be changed according to the holiday you’re celebrating thanks to all the wonderful preprinted cookies that Pillsbury has come out with in recent years.

Have fun while making these Christmas cookies, this is your chance to sprinkle a little magic!

Do You Ship Cookies?

Here is a holiday shipping idea if you have cookies to mail to family, friends and military. Place lengths of wax paper between the cookie layers, then add mini marshmallows just as you would packing material. You’re cookies won’t move around and they will have a natural ingredient keeping them safe and soft.
