clear crystal sugar, white sparkling sugar or sanding sugar (see Tips), divided
frozen (thawed) cranberry, orange or Concord grape juice concentrate or natural liquid dye
- Place sugar in a small bowl. Stir in juice concentrate (or dye) until evenly blended. Adjust color with more additions as desired.
- Spread the colored sugar in a thin layer on a small parchment-lined baking sheet. Turn on the oven to 350°F for 2 minutes, then immediately turn it off. (The warm oven dries the sugar, but too much heat will burn it.) Let the sugar stand in the oven for 1 1/2 hours.
Tips: Find clear (or white) sanding sugar (aka sparkling or coarse sugar) in well-stocked baking stores, gourmet food shops or online.
Makes: about 1/3 cup, to garnish 4 to 5 dozen medium cookies
