maraschino cherries chopped using plain or mixed with cream cheese and coconut
chopped dates, raisins, chopped figs, chopped walnuts and pineapple jam or your favorite jam mixed together to form a paste
cranberries use plain with nuts or mixed with cream cheese
coconut and chopped chocolate or mini chips or use each separate and plain in the centers
chopped chocolate or just chocolate chips
maraschino cherries by themselves or adding coconut
peanut butter plain or top with mini chips
nutella
chocolate chips and chopped nuts
almond paste mixed with chopped almonds or pine nuts
cinnamon and sugar mixed with walnuts and a little melted butter
chopped favorite candy bars
mini marshmallows with mini chocolate chips just fill the centers
lemon curd
finely chopped apples and cinnamon only use that in the second dough

Note: Always cool cookies before garnishing with frostings or powdered sugars.

Garnishing suggestions:

Sprinkle tops with cinnamon sugar mixtures, glaze with  a blend of powdered sugar and water to make a thick frosting, dip in melted chocolate,  roll in walnuts or coconut. Frost and use colorful candies to decorate.  You will have to use your imagination on some of these. Sprinkling with powdered sugar is always the easiest after they are cooled or cocoa powder.
