Ingredients

  • 1 batch Cut Out Sugar Cookie Dough
  • Red, White, and Blue Gel Food Coloring (White Optional)

Instructions

  1. Divide a batch of cut out sugar cookie dough into 3 parts.
  2. Color one part red, one blue, and if using white food coloring, color white.
  3. Separate each color into small to medium sized chunks. At this point you can either jumble them all together for one large sheet of rolled out cookie dough, or divide it in half for two half sheets of rolled out cookie dough. 

  4. Once they're all pushed together, roll out the cookie dough. If it’s not marbled enough, fold over on itself and roll out again.

  5. Once you have your rolled out red, white, and blue cookie dough follow the cut-out sugar cookie dough instructions.

For Cookie Pops

  1. For cookie pops, roll the dough close to ½ thick so it's thick enough hold the candy stick. 

  2. After cutting out a cookie but before baking, place a candy stick about ⅔ the way into the side of the cookie.
  3. If the stick starts to show, add a little more dough to reinforce it.
  4. Place on parchment or a silicone mat and bake following regular sugar cookie dough instructions.

Recipe Notes

How many times you can re-roll this dough depends on how you marble it, but I was able to re-roll the scraps and cut out sugar cookies twice before it got too purple. 

How many cookies you get can vary depending on the particular sugar cookie dough recipe, and the size of your cookies, and how thick you roll the cookies.
