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