Okay, if you don’t have kids, you may not be super interested in this recipe. It’s okay, you can leave now without wasting your time and come back in a couple days when I have something not involving crazy bright colours for you. I won’t be offended!
But if you DO have kids, stick around, because I guarantee they will love love love these cookies. Bright swirls of colour in a soft and tasty sugar cookie. For a kid, what’s not to love?! And you get to feel a bit like a kid again while you make them cause it’s sort of like playing with play-doh!
These rainbow swirl cookies are basically a soft sugar cookie but coloured brightly and rolled up instead of rolled out and cut with cookie cutters. They take a little time, but kids love them. I’ve made them a number of times, generally for something like a birthday snack to send to school or something, and every time I ask my kids what kind of cookies they want to bring somewhere, these are what gets requested.
Which is why we made them this weekend. We needed to send something for a party at school, and this was the immediate response when I asked what we should make. So we did, and there were some happy kiddos here! Kids like bright colours, right?
