Sugar cookies are a holiday favorite probably because of all the possibilities for decorating.  Here's a shortcut recipe from Meijer Healthy Living Advisor Tina Miller

Shortcut Sugar Cookies
Makes about 3 dozen
1 17.5 oz. pkg. Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1 egg
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter or butter blend
Decorating supplies:
Cookie cutters
Decorator writing icing, String licorice, Mini-candies (mini-M&Ms), White icing (canned), Colored sugar and sprinkles
1.  In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, butter and egg until soft dough forms.  Cover and refrigerate dough for 1-2 hours (or more.) 
2.  Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Remove dough from refrigerator and let stand for 10 minutes.  Lightly dust rolling pin and rolling surface with flour.  Roll a "handful" of dough 1/4-inch thick and cut shapes using cookie cutters.   Place on cookies sheets lined with parchment paper.  Add leftover cut out dough to the batch of remaining dough.  Repeat rolling and cutting until all dough is used.
3.  If desired, lightly brush cookies with egg white.   Bake 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned.  Remove from oven and cool completely.  Decorate as desired.
