Ingredients

  • 1/2 tube refrigerated sugar cookie dough, softened
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 ounce white baking chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 4 drops red food coloring
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, beat cookie dough and flour until combined. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-3/4-in. star cookie cutter. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.

  3. In a microwave, melt white chocolate; stir until smooth. Allow to cool.
