Design Mom - "My mom always made hand cookies when I was growing up. We'd place our hand on the rolled out dough, and she trace the shape with a butter knife. And we'd decorate it (add rings and bracelets) with frosting when the cookies were done baking.
After cutting out rounds of cookie dough, create a pattern by using the bottom of a fancy glass. Simply dip the glass in some flour, then press into cookie dough to create an imprint. Use a pastry brush to remove the excess flour from the cookie.
