This is a bit of a project, but, you do all the decorating before you bake, and it feels a bit magic to make a slice and bake cookie with a design in the dough at home. It doesn’t all have to be done in one day, you can spread out assembling the dough rolls over a couple sessions.

This has become my top cookie decoration technique, it’s fun, the results are beautiful, it doesn’t add sugar to the cookies, the cookies stay crispy, and it’s done once the cookies are out of the oven.
Another variation on America’s Test Kitchen’s all purpose glaze, I like their use of cream cheese, it helps mellow the sugar. This variation is just right to go on a flavoured cookie without overpowering it. If the cookie is more of a neutral flavour, there’s room to intensify the glaze with more rosewater.
