  2. 2 Heat oven to 375°F. On lightly floured cloth-covered surface, roll half of dough at a time 1/8 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes. On ungreased cookie sheets, place 2 inches apart.
  3. 3 Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until light brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely.
  4. 4 Mix glaze ingredients until smooth and desired spreading consistency, adding a few extra drops milk if needed. Spread glaze over cookies. Sprinkle with sugars.
Notes
  1. When you're making cutout cookies, always work with well-chilled dough. Cold dough rolls out smoothly, with less sticking. The cookies are easy to cut, remove, and transfer to baking sheets, and they hold their shape in the oven.
  2. To purchase edible glitter, go to sweetc.com and search for edible glitter.
