  • Notes:

    Tips for making roll out cookie dough:
    Make sure your butter is at room temperature so it can easily combine with the sugar. As you scrape down the bowl, don’t forget to scrape the bottom of the bowl, as dry ingredients can sometimes get trapped there. Be careful not to overmix your dough! As soon as your dough starts to clump together, you’re ready to roll (literally and figuratively!)

    Help with melting Candy Melts candy in the microwave:
    If there are still small pieces of candy that haven’t melted, let candy sit for about a minute. This prevents overheating and keeps your candy nice and smooth. If candy becomes too thick, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of vegetable shortening per 10 oz. of candy; 2 teaspoons per 12 oz.
