Christmas Tree Platter
- 1 package peanut butter cookie dough
- 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk or lemon juice
- Assorted food colors, colored sugars and assorted small decors
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Divide dough one half. Reserve 1 half; refrigerate remaining dough. Roll reserved half of dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut out tree shapes with cookie cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Repeat with remaining half of dough. Reroll scraps; cut into small circles for ornaments, squares and rectangles for gift boxes and tree trunks. Bake 8 to 12 minutes depending on size of cookies. Mix sugar and milk for icing. Tint most of icing green and a smaller amount red or other colors for ornaments and boxes. Spread green icing on trees. Sprinkle ornaments and boxes with colored sugars and decorate as desired. Arrange cookies on flat platter to resemble tree. Makes about 1 dozen cookies.
