Holiday Swirl Cookies

As prepared by Gourmet Mom,

As I was browsing in the grocery store last week, I saw some gorgeous holiday suckers. The bright red and green swirls caught my eye and I thought, “I wonder if we could somehow turn these into cookies…”

Meet my Holiday Swirl Cookies:

Christmas Cookie Recipe

Actually, if you have cellophane on hand, they’re even cuter wrapped as little “candies." How great would one or two of those be on top of a gift of goodies?

Cookie Recipe

These are actually super simple to make. I started by grabbing one of my favorite pantry staples, Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix.

Sugar Cookies

Prepare according to package directions, then divide dough into thirds. Tint one section with red food coloring and another section with green food coloring.

Sugar Cookie Recipe

Roll out one section of dough into a 9” x 11” rectangle. Roll out the second section of dough into the same size. Repeat with third section of dough and stack all rectangles on top of each other. Roll all together into a log.
