Decorated Halloween Cream Cheese Roll-Out Cookies

These roll out cookies can really be made for any occasion, but a pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter, some chocolate chips, and some orange sanding sugar makes quick work of turning them into a spooky treat.

Note: With an icing as easy as this, it's best to use your own eyes. Start with 2 1/2 tablespoons of water mixed with 2 cups confectioners sugar until smooth. Not thin enough? Add a little more water, one teaspoon at a time. The icing should be easy to spread onto the cookies but not run off.
