Ready-to-bake sugar cookie dough
10- by 14-inch jelly roll pan

Rolling pin Instructions

1. Press ready-to-bake sugar cookie dough (found in the refrigerated section of the supermarket) into a 10- by 14-inch jelly roll pan.

2. Roll it out to a 1/4-inch thickness. (If your rolling pin is too long to use in the pan, roll out the dough on a large piece of aluminum foil first, then place it in the pan.)

3. Use a knife to cut the dough into about 15 randomly shaped puzzle pieces, then bake it according to the package directions. When it's done, re-cut the lines if necessary.

4. Allow the cookie to cool, then pipe on frosting flowers, leaves, and vines.
