Pinwheel Sugar Cookies

Fun to make and Yummy!
Using a simple sugar cookie recipe…create something fun!

2 3/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 Cups White Granulated Sugar
2 Sticks Organic Unsalted Butter
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Egg
Wax Paper
Food Coloring Kit

Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.
Mix all dry ingredients together.
Blend either by hand or with a mixer using dough inserts.

Set aside.
Take the butter and microwave for about 20 secs. Add to a separate mixing bowl and combine with sugar.
Butter and sugar will cream together on medium speed.
Add the egg.
Add in the vanilla extract.
Slowly add in the dry mixture.
Blend for about 2-3 mins.
Scrape the sides to fully blend.
Lay down some wax paper and roll the dough into a cylinder.
Cover and refrigerate for about 15 mins.
Remove from fridge and grab the food coloring and a rolling pin.
Separate the dough.
Add 14 Red Drops and 4 Blue to a bowl.

These colors give a really cool purple color but feel free to try any combination you like!

Stir with a spoon.

Dye kits vary, If it becomes too dark add 2 drops of yellow to even out the color.
Add the dough to the dye and blend by kneading the dough with your hands until well blended.
Now you should have two separate dough sections to work with.

With a rolling pin roll out dough 1 first and add dough 2 on top.
Enlist help from little kid hands!

Try to get as close to the ends as possible for even color.
Roll the dough from left to right until a cookie log is formed.

Grab a knife and slice into about 1/2 inch sized cookies and place on a cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-12 mins.
Let cool on a cookie rack and serve.

Refrigerate remaining dough until ready to bake.
Makes about 40 cookies!
