Expert Tips

  • If using 20% more sugar cookie mix (21 oz size), increase water in the recipe to 3 tablespoons. This will make 44 cookies.
  • Make sure your dough balls are the same size to keep your baking time consistent. We love using a cookie scoop to form the dough balls before rolling them in the powdered sugar.
