Christmas Light Cookies


  • flour
  • sugar cookie dough
  • 1½ cups prepared vanilla frosting
  • 3 cups M&M mini chocolate candies
  • 4 strands red licorice laces
  • drinking straw
  • Christmas light shaped cookie cutter (small)


Preheat oven to 350°F. Sprinkle your counter top with flour. Roll out your cookie dough to 1/4-inch thickness. By hand, or using a Christmas light cookie cutter, cut out shapes. Gently transfer the cookies to a baking sheet. Using a drinking straw, press a hole at the top of each cookie. Bake for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely. Separate different colors of M&M minis, and set aside. Spread vanilla frosting on top of each cookie. Arrange a solid color of M&M minis on top of each cookie. Let the cookies dry for 30 minutes. Run licorice laces through each hole, connecting the cookies into one continuous strand.
