I'm wondering if anyone else has done this and does it work.

Can color be added to NFSC dough?

I was thinking of adding red and cutting out hearts....any experiences with this? Thoughts?

Yep, yep go right ahead... it takes a lot of red because it fades a bit when it bakes. thumbs_up.gif

yes Ive done it and it took a whole bottle of wilton red for me to get a light red after baking icon_smile.gif I found that you will need to add a bitt more flour as you add the colour tho. HTH

I've done this. I used Americolor Red and if you have access to it, I'd go that way. It doesn't take much at all!

I've only done it with green, to make Frankenstein cookies for Halloween, but ditto everyone else...it works just fine!

Yes, I have stacks of beautifl green Christmas trees I never got to decorate cause I got the flu just after icon_cry.gif

I've always wanted to try that. I'm sure you'll need to use a lot to get a red color, but actually pink would be very pretty too!

Post your results, I'd love to see how they turn out!
