Red and Blue Sugar Cookies (Adapted from Alton Brown’s Recipe)

You Will Need:
– 2 sticks of butter, room tempature

– 1 cup granulated sugar

– 1 tsp vanilla extract

– 1 tb heavy cream (or milk)

– 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

– 3/4 tsp baking powder

– 1/4 tsp salt

– 1 egg

– blue food coloring

– red food coloring


1. Whisk flour, salt, and baking powder. In a small custard bowl, combine heavy cream and egg. Now, in an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until smooth. Now add in egg and cream mixture. Now, 1/2 cup at a time, add in flour mixture.

2. Get out another medium bowl. Now take out half of the sugar cookie mixture. In one bowl, combine red food coloring (enough to make a nice red color) with dough. In the other bowl, combine blue food color (enough to make a nice blue color) with dough. Place bowls in the freezer for about 30-35 minutes, or until dough is firm.

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

4. Now, using a cookie scooper, roll out balls. Flatten the balls with your fingers.

5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies pass the fork/toothpick test.
