I did some narrow letter cookies today. Normally, without any dehydration, they sink more in the middle. But with my dehydrator, they are completely poofy. I just snapped a quick pic to show you. (The picture is crappy, but I think it conveys the difference . . .) The pink cookie (un-dehydrated) has a slight depression along the middle, whereas the purple one (dehydrated) did not sink at all. I used the same icing (just colored differently) for each. Every now and then, there's still sinkage or cratering with the dehydrator (perhaps because I didn't leave the cookies in long enough), but the results are generally very consistently great! Out of the 60 or so narrow/tiny cookies that I iced today, only 2 sunk. In the past, w/o dehydration, almost all of them would have.
Would you mind sharing which dehydrator you use? I'm searching online now for dehydrators..not sure what I'm looking for though
I'd like to know what dehydrator you use also!
