      I can’t be the only one who has problems with sprinkles/colored sugar falling off their cookies when they make them. So, after spending all weekend decorating cookies, I finally figured out a few tricks.

      How to Make Sugar Sprinkles Stick to the Cookie

      First of all, did you know that you’re supposed to add the sprinkles (or colored sugar) BEFORE you bake the cookie? I sure didn’t. I kept trying to add them after I bake.

      The right way to do it is to beat an egg white with a tsp of water until well combined.

      Use a pastry brush to lightly “paint” the raw cookie. Then apply the sprinkles or colored sugar. Bake according to the recipe directions. If the cookie is going to be frosted, you add the sprinkles immediately after frosting, before the frosting has had a chance to set up. Otherwise, they’ll just fall off.

      Another option is to brush the raw cookie dough with a bit of milk, then add the sprinkles or colored sugar and bake. The sprinkles bake right into the cookies, like these soft sprinkle sugar cookies:

      You can use all kinds of different sprinkles or colored sugar. They hold their shape when they bake, unless you use a lot of milk, water or egg and let them dissolve before baking.
