  • Edible glitter or crystal sugar
  • Equipment
  • New Year';s-themed cookie cutters
  • Rolling pin
  • Offset spatula

step 1Gather cookie cutters
Look for New Year’s-themed cookies cutters, like a champagne glass, champagne bottle, balloons, or a New Year’s baby.
step 3Roll dough
Roll out the sugar cookie dough with the rolling pin. Use the cookie cutters to press into the dough to form individual cookies.
step 3Bake
Transfer cookies to a cookie sheet and bake as directed or until golden brown. Let the cookies cool completely.
step 4Divide icing
Divide the icing into thirds, using a different food coloring for each.

step 5Frost
Frost the cookies with one color icing using the offset spatula or a butter knife and allow the icing to dry completely.
step 6Pipe
Fill the pastry bag with a contrasting color frosting and use a fine tip to outline the cookies and create details. Write the year inside the glasses or balloons. Finish with edible glitter or crystal sugar, and your cookies will look just like New Year’s confetti — a perfect way to ring in the year!
