These were really very easy and so cute and bonus, tasty too! I took them to our “borrowed” grandkids and they loved them!
1 (17.5 oz) pouch sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
4 oz cream cheese, softened
around 54 pretzel sticks
1 tub green frosting
around 27 gold star sprinkles or yellow M&M minis
1 Heat oven to 350. Line 9 x 13″ pan with foil, leaving foil overhanging on 2 opposite sides of the pan. Spray with cooking spray.
2 Mix together cookie mix, butter, cream cheese, and egg until soft dough forms. Spread dough in bottom of pan evenly. Bake 20 – 23 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
3 Remove bars from pan by lifting foil up then carefully peel foil away. Cut into 27 triangles by first cutting into three horizontal rows. Then cut each row into 9 triangles so each triangle has a 2″ wide base. (There is a video in the recipe link below that shows how to do this.) Set aside end pieces or just eat them as you go.
4 Insert a pretzel stick carefully into the wider base of each cookie tree. Spoon frosting into a piping bag and pipe over cookies. Sprinkle with sprinkles and top with a sprinkle star or M&M.
