Fourth of July Icebox Cookies

Today I made red, white, and blue cookies for the 4th.

Started with plain sugar cookie mix.  Then I split it into four parts.  I left one part white.  Colored one part red, and colored the other two parts blue.

I rolled all  four parts flat between plastic wrap.  Then I stacked them up.  Blue on the bottom, then red, then white, and another part blue on top.  I wanted mostly blue, but you could do it another way if you wanted to.

Then, I rolled the stack into a log shape.  Wrapped the log in plastic wrap and put it in the freezer until firm.   Then just slice and bake. Oh, and don't forget to sprinkle a little sugar on top before you bake. I used clear sugar crystals.  What's a 4th of July without a little sparkle?

Easy and delicious and the kids can help.  The colored dough looks just like playdough!
