  • 1 (16 ounce) container ready-to-use vanilla frosting, divided use
  • Red and green food coloring
  • NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Mini Morsel Toppers


  1. Freeze cookie dough roll for 20 minutes.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Slice cookie dough roll into 12 even slices. Cut each slice in half to form a wedge. Place wedges 2 to 3-inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake for 13 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Upon removal from oven, with edge of knife, immediately reshape each cookie to be a half circle. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  5. Place 1 1/4 cups frosting into small bowl. Stir a few drops of red food coloring into icing, adding additional drops, to reach desired shade of pink. To remaining frosting in container, stir in drops of green food coloring to shade of green desired.
  6. To Decorate: Spread pink frosting over each cookie in a half circle, leaving a border on curved side for green frosting. While frosting is wet, sprinkle with Toppers to make seeds, pressing Toppers slightly to adhere.
  7. To pipe green frosting, place frosting in pastry bag or small, plastic food storage bag. Cut a small corner from bag. Pipe green icing on rounded edge of pink icing. Allow cookies to set.
  8. Store cookies in tightly covered container.
