Cover It with Icing
A little frosting can hide a multitude of sins (or cracks, or slightly burnt edges). Instead of stamping each cookie with the bottom of a glass, bake them plain. When they're cool, mix 1 cup of confectioners' sugar with 1 to 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (start with one, and add more if you want a thinner glaze). Drizzle the icing over the cookies, topping with a sprinkling of sanding sugar for extra shimmer, if you'd like.
