What you will need:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1-1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • red food color
  • Blue mega M&M’s

    What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In a bowl sift together flour, baking powder & salt.
  3. In another mixer bowl with paddle attachment – beat butter until soft! (or use a Hand Mixer)
  4. Add sugar & beat until light & fluffy.
  5. Add in eggs one at a time – make sure you beat after each one.
  6. Add vanilla
  7. Add dry mixture & slowly beat in until combined all together.
  8. Remove half the dough & wrap in plastic wrap.
  9. Flatten out to 4×4″ piece &  refrigerate.
  10. With the rest of the dough beat in food color to your desired pigment. I added close to 40 drops of gel color to get this red.
  11. *Also- adding this much color will make your dough super sticky. You may want to coat hands in powdered sugar or flour for easier handling.
  12. Remove red dough & separate into 2 equal parts. Wrap with plastic & refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  13. After it has chilled – remove one of the red dough packs
  14. Place between 2 layers of parchment & roll our to a large rectangle
  15. Remove top layer of parchment & roll dough into a log. This will be your center!
  16. Wrap back up with parchment & put in freezer while you work with the next layer.
  17. Remove your white dough from refrigerator & roll out in the same way you did the first batch.
  18. Once you have a thin, even rectangle – place your red log on the white dough & roll into a larger log.
  19. Repeat these steps for the final red dough.
  20. When you are done you should have a large red log
  21. baking sheets with parchment paper
  22. Take the log & slice it into 1/4 inch rounds
  23. Place on baking sheet 2 inches apart so you dont risk them touching
  24. Bake 9-11 minutes
  25. Right when you remove from oven – place your blue M&M’s in the center before the cookies cool down!

    If you enjoy cookies like my family does these will be a hit ! I hoep everyone have a amazing Fourth of July, Stay safe and smart! Also from my family to yours thank you too all our Service Men/ Women for protecting us.
