Sugar cookies can be tough to bake and even tougher to decorate. Laura Wilfon from @wineatbedtime shares with us five cookie-baking tips you can follow to ensure your next batch of sugar cookies has sharp lines, no color bleeding and consistent designing.   

Thank you, Laura, for sharing your expertise!

5 Cookie-Baking Tips:  

  1. Make your cookie dough, roll it out and freeze it before cutting with a cookie cutter for sharper lines.

  2. Let cookies cool completely before decorating to prevent butter seeping through.  
  3. Make your royal icing firm, adding a bit of white food coloring to the entire batch to prevent color bleeding.   
  4. Use a spray bottle of water to thin out icing slowly for best results.
