Pink Sprinkled Sugar Cookies

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)

-Sprinkles

-Large cookie sheets


Directions:

-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
