Expert Tips

You can find blue and red sugars at most grocery and craft stores leading up to the Fourth of July.

Instead of dipping the cookies in the blue sugar, make them all red and white. Then arrange them in the flag shape, but place a bowl full of blue-tinted whipped topping in the corner for a sweet cookie dip.
