Question by L: What type of food coloring/dye should I use to create rich colors ?
Hello, I recently started baking this year and so I’m pretty new at things. I plan on making my specialty iced sugar cookies this year for christmas using holiday cookie cutters. What dye do I use to make rich colors?(green and red in particular) It seems that I can only make pastel colors with the food coloring that I have.

Just go to the grocery store and look for the “McCormick” food coloring …. it comes in Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow. You can buy a multi pack with all 4 in it – or you can buy them individually.

They also sell the pastel colors – Which is probably what you currently have / are using.
