Ombré Iced Sugar Cookies

SERVES: 16 cookies PREP: 15 minutes TOTAL TIME: 1–1 ½ hours (with cooling)

These choose-your-own-adventure colorful cookies are sooo fun to make (and surprisingly easy).

Ooooh! Ahhhh! These look so fancy but they’re super easy to decorate. Even Toons and Miles could do the swirling...honestly better than me. All you do is make a bunch of different colors of icing—I like this neon food coloring set—and then pour them on top of each other in a ramekin or small bowl (just slightly wider than your cookies). Dip the top of the cookies in, let the excess drip off the bowl, and then swirl a bit with a toothpick if you want to try your hand at designing. You can even drip on some food coloring directly onto the cookies before they dry to add more pops of color. Bob Ross them as much or as little as you’d like. Just make sure to let the cookies cool COMPLETELY before frosting, otherwise the icing will melt! Not that I know from experience or anything...

NOTE: These cookies are part of Cravings’ One Dough, Three Holiday Cookies story, so the base sugar cookie dough makes three different cookies. You only need ⅓ of the dough to make Ombré Iced Sugar Cookies—the rest makes Peanut Butter & Jelly Thumbprint Cookies and Spice Cookies.

For the cookies:

  • 4 ¼ cups flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 3 sticks unsalted butter

  • 2 ¼ cups sugar

  • 3 eggs

  • 2 teaspoon vanilla

For the icing:

  • 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar

  • 2 ½ tablespoons whole milk

  • + food coloring of your choice
