Take A Peek Tuesday! Which Came First....?

A reader posted a question on those Chevron Heart Cookies from a few days ago.

K asked "Do you sugar first and then go back for the second color, or the other way around?

When she posted, she chose Anonymous and was a 'no-reply' commenter,
so I couldn't answer!!!

But I can answer her here!

I always, always, always decorate the section to be sugared, last.

Here's why:

See that baseball diamond cookie on the left?
Notice where the brown 'dirt' meets the sugared 'grass'?

That's what happens (at least to me) when I sugar first, then flood the area next to it.
The wet flood icing sort of grabs onto the little sugar crystals and the edge isn't quite straight.

The sparkly centers on these cookies were done after the outer section had dried,
much cleaner edge.

Hope that answered your question K!
Thanks for asking!

Thanks for stopping by! Lizy B
