  • 1
    Heat oven to 350ºF. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until well blended. Knead in enough food color until well blended and desired green color. Divide dough in half; wrap each half in plastic wrap. Freeze 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Shape half of dough into 1 inch balls. With fingers, roll each ball into 10-inch rope, about 1/4 inch wide. Break off small piece from each rope for tree trunk. Carefully place ropes on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 3
    With each rope, starting at top, twist rope back and forth into tree shape, gradually making larger at bottom (rows of dough should touch). If rope breaks, press dough together. Place small piece at bottom of each tree for trunk. Repeat with remaining half of dough.
  • 4
    Decorate trees with baking bits to resemble ornaments or lights. Place 1 candy sprinkle at top of tree for star. Sprinkle with sugar.
  • 5
    Bake 9 to 13 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.
