These are supposed to be color swirled sugar cookies, but I made 2 critical mistakes with these cookies that pretty much ruined their appearance, but now I know better. Mistake #1 I didn’t roll the cookie dough up tight enough so the swirls were really noticeable (This will make more sense later) Mistake #2 I put them too close together on the cookie sheet and they baked together which ruined the sprinkled edges.
You Will Need:
-2 rolls of sugar cookie dough (I used Pillsbury, but you could even make your own sugar cookie dough)
-Red food coloring (or any color you want to make them)
-Large cookie sheets
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Flour your countertop & a rolling pin.
-Roll out one package of cookie dough to make a rectangle
-Place the other roll of cookie dough in a bowl & add a few drops of red food coloring.
-Use a hand mixer to mix the food coloring in (This will take a little bit to get the dough really mixed)
-Flour the top of the white dough rectangle & rolling pin again
-Put the pink dough on top of the white dough rectangle and roll it out so that it’s the same size
-Start at one end of the rectangle and roll the dough into a log
-Pour the sprinkles into a bowl
-Start at one end of the log & cut the dough into small circles
-Roll each circles edge in the sprinkles & place on a greased cookie sheet
-Bake for about 12 minutes
