  • Roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut out cookies with a 2 3/4-inch egg-shaped cookie cutter, re-rolling and re-cutting scraps. Transfer cutouts to 2 large cookie sheets. With a drinking straw or chopstick, make a hole in top of each cookie (so you can thread a ribbon through it). Bake at 350° for 13 minutes, until set and just beginning to brown at edges.

  • Prepare icing: Combine confectioners' sugar, powdered egg whites and 6 tbsp water in a large bowl. Beat with a mixer on low for 30 seconds, then on high for 4 minutes. Divide about 1 1/4 cups icing between 2 smaller bowls. Tint 1 bowl orange and 1 green.

  • Spread cookies with white icing (thinning with water if needed). Decorate cookies with colored icings. Add sparkling sugars, if desired.
