Make these! Hurry! You have a couple days! Also this is the first time I have ever posted a holiday-themed recipe in advance of the holiday, so I deeply hope that someone benefits from it.
I simply made these sugar cookies, which I also have made here, but doubled the recipe, omitted the sprinkles, added white chocolate chips, and dyed half blue and half red. Make sure the dough is chilled before baking, and I think using cold butter gives you a puffier cookie. To get the swirl effect, you simply take a pinch of each dough and roll them into a ball together. Bake for 8-9 minutes at 350.
Enjoy, and happy birthday America!
