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.

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.
