Flair and Square Sugar Cookies
Yield: 24 cookies Prep 35 mins Bake 350°F 8 mins to 10 mins per batch


  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (16.5 ounces) roll refrigerated sugar-cookie dough
  • Assorted fruit chews (Jolly Rancher, Tootsie Roll, Starburst)
  • 1 cup vanilla frosting
  • Jumbo heart sprinkles
  • Yellow nonpareils
  • Pink, blue, red, and orange decorating sprinkles

Make It

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2. Knead flour into cookie dough until smooth. Roll out dough so that it is 1/4-inch thick. With a knife or a pizza cutter, cut out 2-1/2-inch squares. Transfer to cookie sheets and bake until lightly golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.

3. Soften unwrapped fruit chews in the microwave on High for three seconds. Use a rolling pin to flatten chews, then cut shapes using cookie cutters or a knife.

4. Spoon frosting into a small zip-top bag; press out excess air and seal the bag. Snip a small corner from the bag and pipe small dots of frosting on top of the cookies, attach the fruit-chew shapes with frosting, and top with sprinkles, nonpareils, and decorating sugars.
