    NOTES : Cookie Tips

    One of the nice things about rolled cookies is that they will wait until you are ready to bake them. Because the dough can always be refrigerated (and can be frozen, too), they're very convenient. We love them because they present lots of opportunity for creativity. Simple cookies are ideal for teaching the beginning baker how to handle a rolling pin.

    Make It Your Way

    Fruit-Flavored Sugar Cookies are very easy to make. Just sprinkle the cut out cookies with fruit-flavored gelatin instead of granulated sugar.
