Marbled Sugar Cookie Recipe

This marbling technique is simple using McCormick red food color.  Simply make my basic cookie dough, but before rolling it out, add a few drops of food color to give your cookies a marbled design!


Prepare sugar cookies according to recipe in the recipe card linked below.


Prepare cookie dough and then add a few drops of food coloring before rolling out.


Before you add the food color, it’s wise to wear disposable gloves and an easily washable surface.  If you have marble or porous countertops, lay a sheet of parchment down or roll onto a cutting board to alleviate any spills or stains!


Use your favorite cookie cutters to achieve your desired shapes.  Bake for 7 minutes at 375 degrees!


Let cookies cool completely.  I love using McCormick’s red food color in this recipe.  It bakes the perfect pink-ish red cookies!
