Helpful Hints

If your taste buds are hankering after a batch of homemade decorated cookies, here are some helpful hints. I'd love to hear more!

If you need to roll the dough a few times more to cut shapes, use powdered sugar, rather than flour, so when you eat the cookie, your first taste will be sweet and buttery. Powdered sugar absorbs quickly into the dough, as does flour, and it isn't gritty like granulated sugar.
