recipe

Soft cookie dough loses its shape when moved; to retain crisp cut edges, refrigerate dough until firm before baking. Note: This recipe is adapted from "The Martha Stewart Living Christmas Cookbook" (Oxmoor House, 2003.)

recipe

Basic sugar cookies are the star of dessert when iced and decorated with edible silver dust. Various star-shaped cookie cutters are available at cookiecutter.com. The icing will thicken as it sits, so make it once the cookies have cooled.
