It’s that time of year to start thinking about holiday baking! Are you planning a lot of baking this year? The girls and I have quite a bit planned. Good thing they can do a lot of it!
Holiday baking can be expensive. But it can be done frugally if you do some extra work yourself.
Earlier this week, I posted my favorite Sugar Cookie recipe with a frosting that bakes right on the cookie. That makes it perfect for gifts, Some people like sugar on top of the sugar cookies, instead of frosting.
At $1. to $2. for a little bottle of colored sugar, that is definitely not a frugal choice. You can save a lot of money by making your own.
Making Colored Sugar
Place 1/2 cup of sugar in a ziploc bag. Add a few drops of food coloring. Knead to distribute the color throughout the sugar. Dry the sugar on a plate for a few minutes.
How many drops you use depends on how dark you want the sugar to be.
If your doing a lot of baking this holiday season, you can really save quite a bit of money over store bought colored sugar.
