Fun Flower Cookies

Fun Flower Cookies

Ingredients

1
roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
1/2
cup all-purpose flour

Liquid food colors, as desired (red, purple, orange, yellow, pink)
1/3
cup colored sugar, as desired (red, purple, orange, yellow, pink)
12
jelly beans, cut in half horizontally
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour. Divide into 4 bowls; stir in food colors as desired until blended and color is even.
  • 2 Work with 1 bowl of dough at a time, refrigerating remaining dough until needed. Shape dough into total of 12 (1 1/4-inch) balls; roll in colored sugar, and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. With thin sharp knife dipped into flour, cut each ball into 4, 6 or 8 wedges to get different flower shapes, cutting three-fourths of the way down into ball but not through bottom. Spread wedges apart very slightly to form flower petals (cookies will separate and flatten as they bake).
  • 3 Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set and edges just begin to brown. Immediately press 1 jelly bean in center of each cookie. Cool 1 minute; carefully remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 10 minutes. Store in tightly covered container.

These are beautiful!  They resemble Spritz cookies, which I never think of making at this time of year, usually just at Christmas.  This has given me the idea to make some Spritz  for Easter.  Thank you for the recipe.

I saw these the other day and forwarded it to a friend that has 3 little kids I thought they might like to make them.  Also for pretty Easter eggs did anyone see the silk dyed eggs.  They did them on The Chew the other day and My Baking Addiction had them.
Hard cooked eggs and you wrap them in real silk.  Search for scarves or silk pocket squares or ties.  Wrap the silk around the egg and soak in warm water with vinegar.  After about 15-20 minutes remove fro the vinegar water, pat dry and unwrap.  The pattern from the silk and the colors will be on the egg.

 Nellie are you wanting cookies? Me too! I hope this works for you. If not it's under Jelly Bean Cookies.  :)

 Bakery1 was Nancy a cookie lover then too? I have wondered why she's not here anymore.

 Nikki, I've heard of the silk eggs but haven't seen it done. Sounds really pretty!
