Start with chilled cookie dough. Cover your work surface with a generous dusting of flour, sprinkle the top of the cookie dough with flour as well.
Roll out the cookie dough until it is a thin rectangle, about 1/4-inch thick.
Use a pizza wheel, pastry wheel, or sharp knife to cut the dough into long, thin french fry shapes.
Transfer the cookie strips to a parchment-covered baking sheet, and bake the sugar cookies at 350 F for 8-10 minutes, until golden. Let them cool completely on the baking sheet.
Stir 2 tsp of red food coloring (I love Americolor Super Red gel) to vanilla frosting, and stir well. The color will darken as it sits, so if possible let it sit for a few hours after the food coloring is added.
Once the cookies are baked and cooled, portion them into paper containers, put red frosting into individual cups, and enjoy!
