CAMELS
Roll out dough about 1⁄8" thick, cut with a camel-shaped cutter, and brush dough with uncolored egg wash. Next, outline the bottoms of the camels' humps with 4 or 5 pieces of candy confetti each, and use another piece for an eye. Sprinkle the hump with colored sugar and the body with cinnamon sugar, then bake.

MICE
Roll out dough about 1⁄8" thick, cut with a mouse-shaped cutter, then brush dough with uncolored egg wash. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and add a sliver of currant for an eye. After baking, use a brush to apply a wisp of gold dust to the body.

REINDEER Roll out dough about 1⁄8" thick and cut with a reindeer-shaped cutter. Brush dough with uncolored egg wash. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, use a candy holly berry for an eye, and bake. Cool cookie, then paint on a collar with sugar glaze and decorate collar, if desired, with candy holly leaves and berries.
