I need to take cookies to a family party later today. I've just finished decorating my cookies and hope to be able to put them in cellophane bags before I go. Is there anything I can do to get them to dry a little bit faster?
Did you flood them? If so, it's not likely they'll be dry enough to bag later today.
If it's just piping (thicker RI) that you need to dry, you can try putting the cookies in the oven with the light on. Just remember, whatever method you use to dry your RI will likely dry out your cookie, too, so be careful.
Thanks so much for replying. Yes, I did flood the cookies. I think I will still try the oven method and watch them closely. Thanks again!
To hurry along drying, I set them under a gooseneck lamp. In addition to drying them faster, it also helps the RI to stay very shiny.
I am late in seeing this, but if this happens again, put them under a fan. Be careful with a light so that you don't heat up the cookie as that can cause the darkening spotchy look to happen.
