|One of the things I love about Google Reader is the fact you can share cool things with your reader buddies. One of my friends shared this with my boys in mind and it was a blast! Despite my reluctance to make sugar cookies, these tie dye cookies are the coolest things since, well, tie dye cupcakes (which I still have to make with K)… For the cookies, I halved Baked Bree’s Sugar Cookies as follows: |
Kids are great for pouring in ingredients or measuring when they’re older…they’re also great at spreading the spilled ingredients all over the counter as if they were a bulldozer.
Now for the fun part! Separate your dough into however many bowls you want colors of. Add a few drops of food coloring and mix until the color is evenly distributed. This is also great for kids, though K refused to participate because it was sticky.
Have your little helper grab globs of each color and smoosh it into a log-like blob on a sheet of wax paper. For some reason, the stickiness was no longer an issue because K was more than willing to help. Ours turned into an alligator with eyes and legs :) When all the dough is smooshed together, gently roll it into more of a log, wrap the wax paper around it and chill for about 2 hours.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees once the dough is chilled. Slice the dough into 1/4 inch thick disks (without the wax paper of course). Have your helper arrange said dough on cookie sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, being sure to not let the edges brown. This batch made almost 3 dozen cookies.
Let cool completely and devour! I think I’ve met my sugar cookie quota for the next 3 months!
