Before you write these cookies off as being “too difficult”, let me reassure you… they’re not that hard! All it takes is a little extra effort and you will have these stunning Christmas cookies to give to family and friends or to display on your Christmas party table. Not only can you make these swirled cookies with Christmas colors, but you can even change them up for Valentine’s Day, July 4th, Halloween, etc. I will forewarn you on the sprinkles, however. Being a little distracted while making multiple dishes for our Christmas party, I was not really paying attention to details while cooking. Grabbing the first cookie sheet out of the cabinet, I happened to grab one without any edges. BIG. MISTAKE. While transporting this beautiful log of cookie dough, surrounded in brightly colored sprinkles, I happened to bump one of our kitchen chairs. And yup. You guessed it. Rainbow sprinkles quickly adorned every square inch of our kitchen. And for some unknown reason, our dog, Tevah, did not appear to have any interest AT ALL in licking up these delicious, tiny balls of sugar. Instead, the vacuum cleaner and broom were my only weapons to tackle the multi-colored floor. After about 30 minutes of clean-up I thought I had found every last one of them. But even now, a week later, I see a couple in a distant corner, coloring my floor. So please, USE A COOKIE SHEET WITH EDGES when you’re rolling your dough in the sprinkles. It will save you a lot of time! Hope you enjoy!
