  2. Roll and Cut the Cookies: Roll out both doughs and use a round cookie cutter to cut circles.
  3. Bake the Cookies: Bake according to your cookie recipe's instructions and let cool.
  4. Decorate the Cookies: Use white icing on black cookies to represent an eclipse, and yellow icing on plain cookies for the sun.
