My daughter and I came up with a way to “fancify” store-bought sugar cookie dough –> SWIRLS!
We put a couple drops of food coloring on a paper plate, lightly dabbed a small ball of dough in it, then gently kneaded the dough JUST A LITTLE until the color was swirled through the dough. You must stop kneading before the color completely mixes into the dough if you want the swirl effect.
I think they turned out really pretty and much more impressive than plain cookies. We did four different color combinations.
Pink swirl/purple sugar sprinkles; purple swirl/green sugar; green swirl/pink sugar; and yellow swirl/green sugar. They looked very festive and Easter-y!
I love dressing up a simple bought food item! Easy + Impressive = Baking/Cooking Fun for Me!
