How To Decorate Sugar Cookies With Food Coloring Paste

Food coloring paste is often times a go to resource when festive icings & frostings are desired. However, cookie dough may take on an entirely new look when it is kneaded into the recipe formula just after blending. This technique is best when applied to basic vanilla colored doughs as the color will read more vibrant & intense. Learn how to craft these adorable cookies using this simple decorating idea.

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 1 of the dough discs to a 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut 1-inch star shapes. Place 1/4-inch apart on a parchment paper-lined half sheet pan. Re-roll the dough scraps & repeat the process. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until lightly golden around the tips. Cool completely. Save the remaining 3 dough discs for another use or repeat the process to create additional cookies.
