How to colour sugar cookie dough

By: Canadian Living

Making sugar cookies is one of those fun afternoon projects that's sure to get kids interested in baking. Set up a table with royal icing in a variety of shades and display an assortment of candy to decorate with and you're good to go! For a little switch-up, try adding a little colour to the dough itself. I like to use food colouring paste to do this -- it gives the dough a beautifully uniform and vivid colour once it's baked. Here's how to do it! How to color dough {1} Form dough into a ball {2} Using a toothpick, add a little paste food colouring to the dough {3} Knead a few times until uniform in colour {4} Refrigerate the dough as directed, roll, cut and bake away! If you'd like to try it out, here is my all-time favourite sugar cookie recipe, and our fail-safe royal icing recipe to finish decorating the cookies once they're baked.
