What type of food coloring should I use to color my spritz cookie dough?

Teri - from Omaha, NE

The best icing color to use for coloring spritz cookies is Wilton Icing Color. Using a toothpick, add a small amount of color to your cookie dough and either knead the color in, like fondant, or use a stand mixture to incorporate the color. Wilton icing color is super concentrated so remember a small amount goes a long way. And make sure to color your cookies slightly darker than you normally would because after colored cookies bake they look a little lighter.
