Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line the cookie sheet pans with parchment paper.

Knead flour into cookie dough until smooth.

Roll out dough to a scant 1/4-inch thickness.

Cut out 18 cookies, re-rolling the scraps if necessary.

Transfer cookies to the prepared cookie sheet pans.

Bake for 12-17 minutes, or until golden brown.

Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.

Spoon frosting into a resealable plastic bag; snip a corner.

Spread frosting with a small spatula or table knife on about half the cookies to make it smooth.

Decorate with M&M’S Brand Milk Chocolate Candies for the Holidays on cookies’ tops.
