Simple Tip Build an Iced Cookie Drying Tier

By yumsugar

If you're planning on making a lot of cookies this holiday season, but have a tiny amount of space for all your decorated lovelies to dry. You could either invest in a three-tier drying rack, or you could make your own out of paper cups, paper plates, and a little bit of icing.

Stack inverted cups on top of paper plates and create a four- or five-plate stack. Pipe a line of icing on the rims of the top and bottom of the cups in order for them to stick together. This example uses regular-sized cups, which will only allow for three tiers safely; however, if you use smaller dixie cups you'll be able to safely create stacks of four or five.

Also, don't use this for drying regular cookies, you'll still want the circulation that the wire racks provide. Instead, only use this tip for cookies you've just iced.
