Helpful Hints
  • To color sugar for decorating cookies put several drops of food coloring in a plastic bag. Add several tsp of sugar.  Secure top of bag and work coloring and sugar together until evenly combined.
  • Often when making cookies sugar can be cut by 1/3.
  • Mix dry ingredients in a paper bag. The mixture is incorporated thoroughly and you don’t make dirty dishes.
  • Spray your beaters with non-stick oil before using to stop the batter from climbing up the beater handles.
  • One tsp of cornstarch added to fudge will improve its flavor and texture.
  • Keep nuts in the freezer. They will last longer.
  • Store peanut butter upside down to keep it fresher.
  • When doubling a recipe use the original amount of salt.
  • When measuring honey or molasses oil the measuring cup. The sticky liquid will pour right out of your cup.
