Sprinkle powdered sugar on cookies with a tea infuser

Amanda's smart cookie decorating hack:

My ladyfinger cookie recipe calls for powered sugar to be sprinkled on the cookies. I knew using the sifter would make a huge mess and hit more of the cookie sheet than the cookies, so I let my daughter use a tea infuser full of powered sugar to sprinkle it on. It was easy for her to hold and control and kept cleanup to a minimum.
