If the store-bought brand of dough you use is too soft to hold the cookie shapes while baking, you can knead in a little extra flour to stiffen it before rolling it out.
Print the template and cut out the starfish shape.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Use the template and a knife to cut out a bunch of starfish shapes from the cookie dough. Bake the cookie cutouts according to the recipe directions and let them cool.
Working with one starfish cookie at a time, frost the surface with red or blue icing. Then press a line of white sugar pearls or white candies into the icing forming a line in the center of each of the starfish arms. Let the icing set up before serving.
