Easy/Last Minute Happy 4th Idea

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly

These cookies are SO easy and simple to make. You can find my original eggless cookie recipe HERE. I omitted the orange zest, so they're more like traditional vanilla wafer/shortbread cookies--perfect to dip in milk or coffee. This is a great last minute idea to bring to any 4th of July festivity or to make for the kids! :)

 Red, White, & Blue Marble Cookies
- 1 stick butter softened
- 1/2 C powdered sugar
- 1 C flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- red & blue food coloring

In medium sized mixing bowl whisk the butter and powdered sugar until light and creamy. Add vanilla extract. Sift in flour, baking powder, and salt.

Keep stiring until dough forms. Knead until flour is no longer visible. Separate into 2 discs. Add 5 drops each of blue and red food coloring. Using a fork, stir it into the batter creating marble effect.

Wrap each disc with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F, then bake for 30 minutes.

Cookies will be pale. When outer edges start to to turn golden, you'll know they're done.

It's sooooo hot today and I've already begun to feel nauseous from the heat....I know I know. I'm a vampire lol. BUT, that's alright.

To those celebrating the holiday, have lots of fun, stay safe, and most importantly STAY HYDRATED and COOL!

Feast On!
