This recipe for Easter Kaleidoscope Cookies is so much fun to make with your children or grandchildren. You will love it!
I always make decorated sugar cookies for my grandchildren for whatever occasion is coming up. The past few weeks I have been working on a new cookie that is not quite as sweet, or so time consuming. These colorful Easter Kaleidoscope Cookies are like a sugar cookie rolled in sparkles.
I tested them on some of my grandchildren and some of my neighbor boys. They all gave them a thumbs up, along with a few suggestions.
When I first started rolling out this dough, it looked like play-dough to me and I started to call them Play-dough Cookies , but figured the children may be afraid to make eat them.
Combine the ingredients for the dough, roll into a ball.
Cut the dough into the number of different colors you will be making.
Love this dough. It reminds me of the spritz cookies for the cookie press. Not too sweet.
Add coloring paste to each section of dough and blend.
Roll each section into a rope about 12-14 inches long.
Line them up beside each other.
Cut the ropes in half.
Stack the ropes, alternating colors, on top of each other.
Gently, start rolling the ropes together, twisting them to form one long log. I rolled it on my cutting board. Press ends to keep the log even.
Roll the log in a sheet of parchment paper and chill for 30 minutes.
Remove the log and unroll paper.
Pour colored sugars, sparkles, or sprinkles onto a plate.
Make sure to have straight lines of the same colored sugars etc.
Slice into 1/4 inch slices. I cut some of mine too thick and the children did not like them as well.
Roll the cookie slices thru the colored sugars. Some of ours resulted with the entire cookie being pressed into the sugars instead of rolled, but that’s ok too.
Bake and arrange on plate for eating!
Have fun and enjoy these colorful cookies.
