Cookie Puzzle

1 roll (16.5 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookies
1/2 container (1 pound size) vanilla creamy ready-to-spread frosting
Desired gel icing color or liquid food color

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line 13x9-inch pan with foil. Cut cookie dough into 4 pieces. In pan, press dough evenly in bottom. Bake 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool completely in pan, about 20 minutes.

Using foil, lift cookie from pan; carefully remove foil. Place cooled cookie on large serving patter or foil-covered 14x10-inch sheet of cardboard. To create puzzle, use cookie cutters to cut a variety of shapes in baked cookie. Carefully remove shapes from background.

Divide frosting into several small microwavable bowls. Tint frosting as desired with food color. Microwave 1 bowl of frosting at a time for 10 seconds; stir until smooth.

Carefully frost and decorate cut shapes and background as desired. Let stand until set. Return shapes to puzzle.
