Cookie Decorating Tips

By Cook's Illustrated Published November 2011

Here are some quick and easy decorating tips for your holiday treats.

Mess-Free Filling

To simplify the multi-handed job of filling a piping bag, place the bag upright in a tall drinking glass before filling. The glass also makes a good resting place for the bag while you are decorating.

Glitter Sticking Points

Unglazed cookies require a little surface preparation to ensure that embellishments will stick. We recommend lightly misting or brushing the surface of the dough with water before applying decorations.

Tackle Box for Trimmings

Decorating cookies usually means juggling a collection of tiny trimmings. To keep the items close at hand and neatly organized, we corral each one in the individual cups of a muffin pan.
