Roll cookie dough out BEFORE chilling it

Warmer cookie dough is easier to roll out. Using parchment paper makes cookies easy to cut out. 

Bake cookies 8-11 minutes.

Cool on a rack then decorate!

Make the buttercream frosting. 

Frost with white frosting.

Crushed freeze dried strawberries or sprinkles look pretty on white frosting!

Pipe some of the frosting on as well! 

I use my Wilton 1M tip to pipe this pretty star design!
