Expert Tips

  • When you're making cutout cookies, always work with well-chilled dough. Cold dough rolls out smoothly, with less sticking. The cookies are easy to cut, remove, and transfer to baking sheets, and they hold their shape in the oven.
  • To purchase edible glitter, go to sweetc.com and search for edible glitter.
