Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Special equipment: 24 (8-inch) long pieces string or ribbon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 sheet pans with silicone baking pads. 

Slice dough log at 1/4-inch intervals and place onto prepared baking sheets spaced 1 inch apart. 

Press a 1-inch round cutter into the center of each cookie round. Remove the small circle of dough and replace it with a round hard candy. 

Bake in oven 8 to 10 minutes. 

Remove from oven. While still warm, make a hole at the top of each cookie with a large straw. Place baking sheet on the cooling rack and cool completely. 

When the cookies have completely cooled, use the decorative icing and evenly space 6 icing dots around the edges of each cookie. Lightly push the silver dragees into the icing dots. Allow icing to harden. 

Place the 8-inch piece of ribbon through the hole at the top and tie the ends together. 

Repeat with remaining cookies. 

You can eat your cookies or hang them as ornaments on a Christmas tree or in a window.
