Whatever the occasion, your celebration will surely benefit from these colorful rainbow pinwheel sugar cookies! Made with a tried and true vanilla almond sugar cookie recipe as the base, these slice and bake beauties are as delicious as they look and easier to create than you think.
Natural food coloring will yield colors that are a bit more on the earthy side and more muted than those you see pictured. For this recipe, gel food coloring works better than liquid food coloring to create vibrant, even colors.
Use parchment paper when rolling out each layer of dough to help create smooth, consistent layers. Dust powdered sugar on the rolling pin and rolling surface instead of flour to help retain the sweet cookie flavor and avoid sticking.
Parchment paper placed under the layered dough helps ensure the dough rolls evenly and without cracking. Be sure to roll dough tightly to prevent gaps in the cookies.
Chilling this sugar cookie dough makes it easier to slice and helps it retain its shape. The dough can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days before slicing and baking.
