Sugar Pattern Cookies
Instantly turn any dark, plain, wafer-flat cookie into a delicate pattern of light and dark shapes with sugar patterns. This technique is easier to do on large cookies.
- Cut lightweight cardboard or parchment paper into small strips. Arrange strips on top of completely cooled cookies in a random pattern.
- Dust cookies with sifted powdered sugar. Carefully remove strips, lifting each one with a wooden toothpick so you don't disturb the pattern.
Dust the cookies with powdered sugar.
