  1. Add just a little color with a toothpick. Gently blend color into dough using stand mixer paddle attachment, or knead in by hand.
  2. Stop to check the color. If it is too light, add a little more color and continue mixing until desired shade is reached.
  3. Tint dough a little darker than you would tint icing; cookies will bake lighter than dough appears.
