Rainbow Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and it looked so easy and so much fun to make.  I did it with my kids one day and they had a blast.  It's like a craft project and cooking project rolled into one.  You can make this recipe even easier by using a store bought sugar cookie dough which is what I did.  Below are step by step picture directions.  Have fun!


Sugar Cookie dough
Red, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple Food coloring
Non-pareil sprinkles


Take your prepared cookie dough and divide into 5 equal parts.  Color each part with a different color food dye.  You can use any colors that you like (I did the typical "rainbow" colors).  Knead the color in until the dough is colored throughout with no white streaks. 

Next roll each section of colored dough into long snakes.

Then cut the snakes up into small 1 inch pieces

Next take one piece of each colored dough and gently roll into a ball

Now take each of the colored dough balls and roll into a long snake again

Next wrap each of the long snakes into a spiral shape

Only two more steps! Roll the edges of each sprial in non-pareil sprinkles and lay flat on a baking sheets lined with a silpat or parchment paper.

Bake at 350 F. until baked through but not brown about 10 minutes (watch them carefully)


  1. Definitely making these with the kids!

  2. It's a good "heat wave" indoor activity :)

  3. I can see that the kids would love doing this! They probably really like sampling their work!

  4. Oh my goodness these are adorable!! Looks like such a fun thing to make with little ones.They not only look pretty but yummy also.
