The Technique 

Sparkling Gold Star Sugar Cookies

Classic Sugar Cookie dough may be tinted with yellow food coloring paste then decorated further after it has been cut & baked for treats that beam with intense color & glitzy texture. Sparkling Gold Star Sugar Cookies feature several simple design techniques that are good to know if you’re planning to offer holiday guests a nice variety of Christmas cookies. Meringue powder & water may be blended & brushed over the surface that acts as a safe edible glue so that sprinkles, colored sugars or other items stick to the sugar cookies. Pair them with small bags of Miniature Gold Star Sugar Cookies, Miniature Buttermilk Gingerbread Cookies & Decorated Buttermilk Gingerbread Cookies for a lovely selection of treats your entire family will rave over.

How To Create Sparkling Gold Star Sugar Cookies

Once the Classic Sugar Cookie dough has been prepared, transfer to a lightly floured work surface. Tint the dough using the yellow food coloring paste by kneading it until evenly distributed. Divide the dough into four pieces & form them into discs. Wrap each disc with plastic. Chill 30 minutes or up to 2 days.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Roll 3 of the dough discs to a 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut 2 1/2-inch star shapes from the dough & place 1/4-inch apart on parchment paper-lined half sheet pans. Re-roll the dough scraps & repeat the process. Bake, in batches, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely. The remaining dough disc may be rolled & portioned using a 1-inch star shaped cutter. Look to Holiday Entertaining: Miniature Gold Star Sugar Cookies for detailed instructions.

Whisk together 1 tablespoon hot water & 1 teaspoon meringue powder in a small bowl. Pour the mixture through a fine wire mesh strainer. Place the stars over parchment paper. Swipe the meringue mixture over the cookies using a small pastry or paint brush, then sprinkle with a bit of yellow sparkling sugar. Let stand 30 minutes. Pick the stars up to remove the excess sugar.
