Get the "watercolors" out for butterfly cookies!!  We had so much fun painting our cookies.  This is a great way to decorate sugar cookies without having to add frosting.  Don't get me wrong, I love sugar cookies with frosting, I just hate seeing my kids eating all that sugar. This ends up being a very easy "craft" if you buy the dough premade.


Supplies Needed to make Watercolor Butterfly Cookies:

  • Your favorite sugar cookie recipe or store-bought sugar cookie dough
  • Water
  • Food Coloring
  • Bowls
  • Basting Brush or plastic-bristle paint brush that hasn't been used for paint

Directions to make Watercolor Butterfly Cookies:

    • Roll the cookie dough out on a floured surface, cut with your cookie cutter and place on baking sheet
    • In separate bowls for each color, mix a couple drops of food coloring with water
    • Paint your sugar cookies with the Brush


  • Bake according to your recipe's directions
