I made these cookies for the bake sale booth and they were a huge hit! They are easy and fun to make - like playing with play dough! I found the idea and a great tutorial at The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle.
Start with a great sugar cookie recipe.
My Favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe:
1 1/2 c unsalted butter
2 c sugar
2 tsp pure almond flavoring
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
5 c flour
gel food coloring
cream butter and sugar together.
mix in almond flavoring and eggs.
slowly add flour, salt and baking powder. mix until well combined.
divide dough and mix in coloring.
refrigerate for 30 minutes before rolling or shaping cookies.
When the dough is ready to work with, make a small ball of each color.
