Tips

Expert Tips

  • If you don’t have a snowflake-shaped cookie cutter, you can use either a star-shaped or scalloped-edge cutter, and cut small triangles and pieces out of the center to form snowflakes.
  • Look for coarse sugar in the baking aisle of the supermarket or search for it on sweetc.com.
