Patriotic Sugar Cookie Recipe…?

July 4, 2011

They'll look like this!

Happy 4th of July, guys!

How to Make this Recipe Patriotic: You can split the already-made cookie dough into three different bowls.  You can dye one red with food dye, another blue, and you can leave the last one the same.

Sugar Cookie Recipe:


  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar (you can use brown sugar, but they won’t look the same)
  • 2 sticks butter (or 16 tbsp of buttery spread)
  • 3 egg yolks (or 1/4 cup of thoroughly blended silken tofu)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (you really can use any flour except self-rising)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup white sugar (once again, you can use brown sugar, but they won’t look the same)


  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Mix together butter, 1 1/4 cup sugar, egg yolks and vanilla extract.
  • Sift in flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt and mix well.
  • Form dough into two tablespoon sized balls and roll into 1/3 cup sugar.
  • Place cookie dough balls on a greased or nonstick pan, about two inches apart.
  • Bake 12-14 minutes or until the surface of each cookie has a cracked-like texture.
  • Let cookies sit on the pan for 5 minutes to let them firm up a little and to avoid them from breaking.
Is this not an awesome thing bake on the 4th?

  1. I love the idea of making these cookies different colors. Too cute!
    I love sugar cookies!

    • I was originally going to just post the cookie recipe, but then I decided I should probably make it patriotic for the holiday.

  2. Ah! I actually was just in CVS and saw patriotic sugar cookies on the cover of Martha Stewart’s July issue and SO wish I had made them!! Next year I guess 🙂
