Well… This was a Pinterest thing. I decided to NOT follow the recipe provided, and that did not work out in my favor. Instead of creating a recipe, I went with a boxed sugar cookie mess…. Things I did NOT think about when making my rainbow cookies: most likely they will melt down into a blob during baking. Ha! So, I’d like to introduce you to my Rainbow Bum Cookies. Yeah. They look like colorful bums.
When we shared these cookies with my friend’s 6 year old, he whispered to his mom, “Hey, mom… These look like bottoms!” Ha! That makes me giggle. Yup. Rainbow Bum Cookies.
So, I can’t call this a Pinterest fail… Since I didn’t actually follow the rules. I’ve heard that refrigerating the dough overnight might help keep the sugar cookies from going flat… Oh well. When you put them on a teacup, they still look pretty cute (and less like a butt).
I REALLY recommend checking out the recipe on this site. The recipe is called “Play Dough Cookies” and I feel like ACTUally following this recipe will work out better than my butt cookies. Ha! Regardless of how my cookies turned out, the kiddo and I did have a GREAT time making them. We split up the dough into 6 sections, added a different color to each section, rolled out the cookies into strips and put together. Bake. Done.
Have you tried making these?
