Tips  

To ensure cookies are done, carefully peek at underside, making sure bottoms are golden brown. Resealable food-storage plastic bags are great substitutes for decorating bags. Depending on the ingredient, small squeeze bottles can also work well. Kids find both very easy to use and cleanup is a breeze!
