Tie Dye Is the Most Impressive (yet Easy) Way to Decorate Sugar Cookies—Here's How to Do It
When it comes to baking, I tend to focus my efforts on making sure my desserts taste delicious over making them look immaculate. Don't get me wrong: Presentation definitely matters, but I'd choose a cake with a 'rustic-looking' layer of homemade buttercream over one with super-smooth, fancy-but-sand-flavored fondant any day.
I (predictably) apply this philosophy to sugar cookies, too. Why spend hours piping out the most painstakingly perfect snow-dusted pine tree if it isn't even edible? That's why, when I first discovered this tie dye decorating trick, I was over the moon. Finally, a way to send my loved ones tins filled with deliciously sweet, buttery decorated cookies that look way more high maintenance than they were to make.
Tie dye is basically a hot mess by nature (makes these the perfect holiday cookie for 2020, no?), which means this decorating trick is near-impossible to screw up. Here's how to execute the cutest tie dye sugar cookies for whatever holiday you're celebrating this season.
