I've searched but can't find a post that helps...I iced my sugar cookies last night with RI, and I need to package them tomorrow. Usually that is plenty of time to dry, but I think I got my flooding icing too wet, plus it must be humid here, and they are not setting up quickly at all - is there some way to dry them out faster?

I thought I read on here once that you could put them in a very low temp oven, but I've never tried that.

Any tips? HELP!! Thank you!

Putting them in the oven with just the light on & door shut will produce the heat needed. Beaware this will dry out the cookie.
Another option is do you have a food dehydrator(sp?)?
OR put them under a lamp that will shine down on them.

I bet waiting until tonight is going to solve your problem just fine.

I just aim a tabletop fan at them on high and the RI dries really quickly. icon_smile.gif

tO DRY YOUR COOKIES YOU CAN USE 2 LAMPS WITH A 100w BULBS, DIRECTING THE LIGHT TO THEM, THAT WILL HELP YOU. IT WILL MAKE THE ENVIRONMENT WARM.AND WILL DRY FASTER
