Roll dough by 1 tbsp into balls. Arrange, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Supporting opposing sides of 1 ball with 2 fingers, press opposite index finger into centre to create deep well. Pinch together any cracks around edge. Repeat with remaining balls.

Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 350 F (180 C) oven until no longer shiny, about 8 minutes. Let cool on pans for 3 minutes; transfer directly to racks. Sprinkle with icing sugar; gently press 1 candy teardrop into well of each cookie. Let cool completely. (Makeahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container; store for up to 3 days.)
