I am making cookies for a party TONIGHT. Can I quick dry the royal by putting the decorated cookies in a low temp oven?

there was a thread about it few months back. Seems like someone put them into some kind of oven at 100. I have a new convection oven, so I hope you either find the thread or they post it again here. Seems I've also heard of blow dryer, but I've never tried. You may have to go with rolled buttercream and detail with RI

I put some half dried cookies in a 110 degree convection oven once, and it seemed to work. I wedged the door open about 1 inch while it was on, hoping it would maximize the flow of warm dry air. It is nerve wracking though... being in a rush when your RI is not!! Good luck with your cookies today!

Thanks, all.They were sufficiently dried. I have a convection oven, but the fan won't run if the door is cracked at all.

Sweetdreams, that is it! Thanks! I have to do some quick drying tonight, My convection oven fan won't run with door open either, and convection temp only goes down to 170 degrees, but it does have a 'warm' setting that is 100. I'll give that a try and let y'all know how that works out!

Okay, did the quick dry with turning on convection a couple of times, not leaving it on because the lowest temp was 170 degrees. Yes, it worked....but then I had a 'duh' moment, the icing dried, but so did the cookies. They tasted great, but were a bit crunchy. Oh well.

Cakedesigner59, you're right, they were crunchy but yummy-yum-yum.
It was the music notes I had to do over because the cookie cutter was backwards, I just trusted I was the idiot and didn't know what one looked like icon_wink.gif The design and colors on the music notes matches their set. This bouquet was HUGE, it was for The Pajama Game play my daughter is in at school, I had over 45 cookies in there, couldn't stick them all in, so I had to stuff some down in between the cookies in the bouquet. have a look at my www. Don't know about y'all, but my upload on CC isn't working.
