Step 1

Dough Colors Tinted

Divide dough into thirds (about 16 oz. each) and use Color Right base colors and QuickCount color formulas to tint icing in the following shades:

  • Dark green = 16 oz. dough + 11B + 14Y
  • Green = 16 oz. dough + 1BR + 1B + 25Y
  • Red = 16 oz. dough + 36R

Step 2

Prepare cookie dough. Divide into three portions; tint following formulas above. Thin ΒΌ cup of each colored dough with 1 tablespoon water to piping consistency. Place each thinned dough in a decorating bag fitted with tip 2.

Step 3

Make cookies. Roll out remaining cookie dough, cut with stocking cookie cutter. Using the wheel embosser, using a variety of design wheels, emboss cookies. Use thinned down cookie icing to pipe design details. Bake and cool cookies following recipe instructions.
