Decorated Chevron Print Cookies

I know, I know.  Everyone is pretty much over the whole chevron thing, but I wanted to come back to this popular print once more.

This time, however, in addition to the pattern, I want to answer another frequently asked question…how to apply sprinkles to one part of a cookie without them sticking to another.

How to Make Chevron Cookies SweetsugarbelleYou can make chevron print cookies with or without a projector, but I prefer this method to save time.  If you don’t have a Kopykake, you can still make cookies like these by following the steps here or here.

To make these cookie you will need:

Begin by placing the image into the Kopykake and centering it on the cookie.  I usually like to go wider with the pattern to prevent cratering and those awkward little spaces.

The next day…or HOURS later, flood the remaining sections in the color of your choice.  After a few minutes sprinkle with sanding sugar.
