        2  packages      refrigerator sugar cookie dough rolls
                         Flour for board and rolling pin
                         heavy card-type paper or cardboard
                         Various icings in tubes from supermarket
                         Various candies for decorating cookies
 Cut each sugar cookie dough roll in half. Form each into a ball and flatten
 into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate about 45 minutes until
 firm. Draw and cut out hand shapes of family members to use as guides for
 making cookies. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. (check temperature on cookie
 dough package.) Working with one dough ball at a time on floured board,
 roll out to about 1/4 inch thick. Use enough flour so dough isnt sticky and
 can be easily removed to cookie sheet. Place paper hand cut-out on dough
 and trace with a sharp knife, making cookie hands. Place on cookie sheets &
 bake until light golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool on rack
 completely before decorating. Repeat with all cookie dough. Decorate using
 icings and candies. You can even write family members names on each. This
 is the fun part to do with kids!
