Colored sugar to top cookies with, or roll them in .. sometimes I use it to top muffins when I make them for kids .. I usually use coarse sugar, and it works well ..

I was making sugar cookies and my husband asked where the colored sugar was. I didn't have any so I came to this site. This recipe worked perfectly. I put the ingredients in a cup and used a spoon to combine so I didn't get it on my fingers. Will be using this again
