Tips

Expert Tips

Single flavors of soft drink mixes (such as strawberry) will give a brighter-colored cookie than blended flavors (such as strawberry-kiwi).

To minimize melting of candies and gels during baking, place cookie sheet of decorated cookies in the freezer for 10 minutes before baking. The baking time will not change.
