Roll out the sugar cookie dough with the rolling pin. Use the cookie cutter to press into the dough to form individual cookies.
Bake the cookies as directed or until golden brown. Let the cookies cool completely.
Divide the icing, coloring about one-quarter of the icing gold by adding a drop or two of red to ten drops of yellow. Color the rest of the icing, using ten drops of red food coloring with a few drops of green to make a dark red.
Frost the cookies with the dark red frosting using the offset spatula or a butter knife and allow the icing to dry completely.
Fill the pastry bag with the gold frosting and use a fine tip to outline the USC or SC letters. Go Trojans!
