Make Sugar Cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, add contents of Sugar Cookie Mix, Butter, Egg, Milk, Vanilla Extract and Flour.
Using handheld mixer, combine on medium speed until Dough forms.
I prefer to use the mixer half way and then my hands to incorporate everything perfectly.
Form Dough into a ball and cover in plastic wrap.
Chill Dough in fridge for at least half an hour so it is easier to work with.

Lightly sprinkle Flour on work surface and rolling pin so Dough does not stick. Repeat if needed to prevent Dough from sticking.
Separate Dough in half, keeping other half in the fridge until you are ready for it.
Roll Dough and cutout round Cookies.
Do the same with remaining Dough.
Place Cookies on ungreased baking sheets and space apart so they do not stick together as they bake.
Bake for 7-10 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
Leave in baking sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks to cool completely, approximately 1 hour.
|Decorated Sombrero Cookies|
Leave cookies on cooling racks and for each cookie do the following:
Place Sprinkles in a plate.
Cut tip off Betty Crocker Decorating Cookie Icing and squeeze out Icing in a circular motion around the Cookie (see photo).
|Lovely Sombrero Cookies|
Return Cookie face up to cooling rack (see photo).
Take Cookie Icing and squeeze out a round circle in the center of the cookie (see photo).
Keep doing this for the remaining 23 cookies.
