Serves: 15
Ingredients
  • 1 roll (16.5-ounces) Pillsbury refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour, plus additional for work surface
  • egg yolks (the number depends on how many different colors you are creating)
  • food coloring
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Break up cookie dough in a large bowl and knead in ¼ cup flour. Sprinkle work surface with flour and using a rolling pin, roll out dough to slightly less than ¼-inch thick adding additional flour as necessary to prevent sticking. Chill dough in refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  2. Using a 3½-inch egg-shaped cookie cutter, cut out egg shapes and place on prepared baking sheet. Re-roll dough scraps as necessary to make 15 cookies.
  3. Add desired food coloring to egg yolks and 2 teaspoons water and whisk to combine.
  4. Paint cookies in desired colors to within ¼-inch of cookie edge.
  5. Bake 7-11 minutes or until puffed and edges are very light brown. Place on cooling rack to cool completely.
Notes
Roll out dough between parchment for easy handling.

If you’re making a small batch, divide the egg yolks in half.

You don't have to use a cookie cutter --- cut out egg shapes freestyle! You can also use a smaller cookie cutter as well.
