SWIRLY SUGAR COOKIES

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!
