It’s a snap to make this "boo-tiful" centerpiece base. Place a 12- to 16-inch tree branch in a 4-inch clay pot anchored with rocks. Cover the top with Spanish moss found at craft stores.
Use the remaining dough scraps after you’ve cut out your cookie shapes to make more cutouts. Combine the scraps (handling them as little as possible) and re-roll the dough on a very lightly floured surface.
