Form into a round dough, wrap in plastic and chill for an hour. Pre heat the oven to 375F. On a slitely floured surface roll the dough out to 1/4" thick. Cut into desired shapes and place on a lightly greaseed cookie sheet placing at least 1" apart. Bake 8 to 10minutes or until no imprint remains when lightly touched. Cool. To make the frosting. Use confectioners sugar with a little milk. Mix to thickness you want to decorate. Add a few drops of food coloring and top with your favorite sprinkles while frosting is still wet. Let sit over nite. Then put them in seal plastic bags to keep fresh of in a tight container. They kids will have so much fun doing these at Christmas.
