If you haven’t figured it out yet, I use my basic sugar cookie recipe to make all sorts of treats. From frosted, to tea infused to swirled, it’s a great recipe to have on hand and modify to suit your needs. Follow along for a quick tutorial on making these colourful swirled cookies using this sugar cookie recipe for the dough (and baking instructions), sure to please the kids in your life, big and small!
Knead food colouring into one of the parts of dough. I made one half deep blue and left the other half as is. Chill the dough.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out each ball of dough separately to about 1/4 inch thickness.
Trim the edges so you end up with a neat and tidy rectangle. Save the scraps! You can still bake the scraps up into yummy cookies! They’ll just look ‘marbled’.
