Holiday Cookies: 1 Dough, 4 Cookies

Martha Stewart Living, December 2003

Here's one of the best-kept secrets of professional bakers: It takes only one cookie dough to produce a beautiful assortment of holiday cookies. With a few subtle twists (a sprinkle of coarse sugar, a burst of orange zest) and basic tools (a rolling pin, a cookie press), you can make clever variations from a single sugar cookie recipe. 

In just an afternoon, you'll have dozens of sparkling snowflakes, jam-filled thumbprints, powdered snowballs, and festive flowers -- all worthy of a bakery display case.

Our Basic Sugar-Cookie Dough recipe can be used to create:
Santa's Snowflakes
Orange Spritz
Chocolate-Raspberry Thumbprints
Hawaiian Snowballs
