Prep time: 30 minutes
Sugar cookie dough, prepared (from mix or roll)
Assorted food coloring
- Preheat the oven according to the sugar cookie directions.
- Divide the cookie dough into three equal portions. Place the portions on a floured work surface and shape into shallow cups. Add a different color of food coloring to each portion of dough.
- Fold over the edges of each dough portion to enclose the food coloring and knead until the dough is evenly colored; add a bit of flour if the dough is too sticky.
- Shape the dough as desired by rolling and cutting or using cookie cutters or playdough cutters. Place cookies on a cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Use an oven mitt to place in the oven as directed by sugar cookie mix/roll instructions. Use oven mitt to remove from oven and place cookies on a wire rack to cool.
