Christmas Cookie Bling

Date December 1, 2012

Why hold back all that bright shiny Christmas candy bling-bling for the top of the cookie when you can make the inside of the cookie sparkle too?

Just toss a cup of non-pareils, sprinkles, jimmies or sugar thingamajigs into the dough immediately after adding the dry ingredients and give the dough a few more spins before rolling and cutting. If you add the candies earlier in the mixing process the moisture can make the candy coloring  bleed into the dough causing the pop of splattered color to be lost.

Remember, true beauty is found on the inside.
People. Cookies.
I’m sure the same principle applies.

    Christine, great idea! I actually forgot I have bags of Karen's free sprinkles in a cupboard! And putting a child's favorite color in their birthday cookies…always a BIG hit!

    Susan, I love that you said that! One of the things I like about making different flavored cookies is so they taste yummy without icing (like when pressing cookies in molds, etc.
