- 1 batch plain or tinted Vanilla Dough or Spice Dough (or 1/2 batch Chocolate Dough plus 1/2 batch Sanding sugar (optional)
- 1 batch Vanilla or Citrus Glaze (or 1 cup melted white chocolate (8 ounces) plus small candies -- optional -- for white-chocolate-glazed cookies)
- Knead dough briefly to soften. Fill a cookie press with dough (if making swirl cookies, fill with both kinds of dough), and fit with disk to make shapes. Squeeze cookies directly onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle with sanding sugar, if using. Bake at 350 degrees until firm, 12 to 14 minutes.
- Let cool completely before dipping in the vanilla or citrus glazes, or melted white chocolate. Apply small or crushed candies, if using, while glaze is wet. Let vanilla- or citrus-glazed cookies set on a wire rack. Let white-chocolate-glazed cookies set in refrigerator, and keep chilled until ready to serve.
