One more fun recipe made for the beach theme! These were simple sugar cookies just half was died blue, well a little more than half I didn't measure that well .. lol. I saw this idea on The Simple Parent, she used jello to color and flavor her cookies I love my AmeriColor food gel (no taste and a beautiful color).
What you Need:
Sugar Cookies (see recipe below)
AmeriColor Food Color Blue (or Jello like she did)
Half your recipe to keep one half the white (cream color) and then add food coloring to your mixer and mix to the perfect blue color. Take a ball of white and a ball of blue and roll them together! Bake like normal and tada Sand & Sea Cookies! My second batch got a little brown due to the kids were requesting things and I spaced on the cookies in the oven (still yummy just darker then I like).
I started out with a Sugar cookie found on All Recipes, dubbed The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies.
|1.||In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).|
|2.||Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.|
|3.||Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.|
