Festive Swirl Sugar Cookies

December 6, 2011

These swirl sugar cookies from Our Italian Kitchen are a festive treat that have the power to put anyone in the holiday spirit.  Homemade sugar dough is divided into two batches, one white and the other green, then rolled together, sliced, and baked.  If you don't want a green swirl, color the dough blue or red.  This holiday season, skip the pre-made Pillsbury cookie dough and make these swirl sugar cookies instead.
