Holiday Painted Cookies

Holiday Painted Cookies
  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Cinnamon, Ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Nutmeg, Ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 (16 ounce) containers white frosting


  1. Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in medium bowl. Set aside. Beat sugar and butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Gradually stir in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Roll dough on generously floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out shapes with holiday cookie cutters. Place on ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
  4. Spoon 1 container of the frosting into medium microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 20 to 30 seconds, stirring every 10 seconds. (Frosting should be a pourable consistency.) Dip tops of cookies into frosting. Microwave remaining container of frosting as needed. Place frosted cookies on wire rack set over foil-covered baking sheet. (The baking sheet will catch drips.) Let stand 10 minutes or until frosting is dried.
  5. Prepare desired colors of Holiday Flavor Paints (see tips). Using small clean paint brushes, paint designs on cookies.
