Iced Christmas-Cookie Letters

['All-purpose flour (for surface)', '1 batch gingerbread cookie dough, chilled', '8 ounces white chocolate, melted', 'White sanding sugar (for sprinkling)', '2–3" letters printed on paper in your favorite bold font (or alphabet cookie cutters); toothpicks; an X-acto knife or small paring knife']

Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 350°F. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Cut out printed letters with scissors to use as stencils.
Generously flour a rolling pin and work surface. Working with 1 disc at a time, roll dough to 1/4" thick. Place stencils over dough. Using X-acto knife, cut out letters (or use alphabet cookie cutters). If dough becomes too soft, chill until firm. Place cookies 1/2" apart on prepared baking sheets. Chill 15 minutes.
Bake cookies until edges are light golden brown, 10–12 minutes. Transfer to wire racks and let cool.
Meanwhile, heat chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl set over a medium saucepan of barely simmering water (do not let water touch bowl), stirring, until chocolate is melted (you can also microwave chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in short bursts until melted, stirring in between bursts). Dip tops of each letter in chocolate. Using a toothpick, drag down thin lines of chocolate to form icicle shapes. Sprinkle with sanding sugar and transfer to parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets. Let stand until chocolate is dry, about 1 hour.
