Coloring the cookie dough

Make any cookie merrier by adding color to the dough! Just a little icing color will make it easy to create festive cookies like the two-tone twists.


Step 1

Step 1: Add Color

Add just a little color with a toothpick. Gently blend color into dough using stand mixer paddle attachment, or knead in by hand.

Step 2

Step 2: Check Color

Stop to check the color. If it is too light, add a little more color and continue mixing until desired shade is reached.


Tint dough a little darker than you would tint icing; cookies will bake lighter than dough appears.
