Halloween Colorful Pinwheel Cookies



Easy Halloween Sugar Cookies are a soft, pinwheel sugar cookie recipe, made with fun holiday colors like green, orange, purple and black! Perfect for your Halloween celebrations.


– 3 cups all-purpose flour – 1 tsp baking powder – ½ tsp salt – 1 cup butter at room temperature – 1½ cups granulated sugar – 2 large eggs – 2 tsp vanilla extract – 1 tsp orange gel food coloring  – 1 tsp black gel food coloring  – Halloween sprinkles


Combine cookie dough ingredients in a large bowl as you normally would.


Separate the dough into equal parts and add the desired colors to each section.


Make them into balls. Roll out each ball of dough to about ⅛ – ¼” thick, and stack them on top of the other.


Pour some sprinkles into your hand & brush the outside of the dough with a bit of water and then press the sprinkles into the outside of the dough log.


Roll up and chill for one hour. After the hour, cut the log of dough into ¼ – ½” thick cookies and place the rounds on a parchment lined baking sheet – approx 2 inches apart.


Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, or until no longer shiny on top.
