These Rainbow Swirl Sugar Cookies are so much fun! And, really very simple to make. They were inspired by my ever so popular Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies.
- Sugar cookie dough (you can make your own, but it's not necessary)
- Vanilla icing (jarred is fine, but instructions for mine are below)
- Food coloring
- Divide icing into however many colors you want to use and color each with food coloring (make sure they're nice and bright!
-Roll out sugar cookie dough into a large rectangle.
- Score lightly so you have as many columns as you have icing colors
- Fill each column with a different color icing. (Use a thin layer, otherwise this will happen when you bake. They will still taste good, but they won't look so hot!)
- Roll up and throw in the freezer for 30 minutes (don't skip this step!)
- Bake according to your sugar cookie recipe.
