  • 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.
