I know it's already Earth Day today, but these cookies are so simple to make, you still have time, especially if you're like me and have spare sugar cookie dough in the refrigerator. If not, you can whip up your own in no time, or always purchase some ready-made dough.
I had a little over a pound of cookie dough and used my food scale to divide it in half. I added blue gel food coloring to half, and green to the other, then blended it well with my hands.
The next step was simple and reminded me of my rainbow cake pops...
I took a bit of dough from each color and rolled them together into a ball (about 1-inch), then placed them on the cookie sheet. I baked them at 350 degrees for about 17 minutes.
After taking them from the oven I immediately flattened them with a fondant smoother tool. If you don't have one, you can use the bottom of a glass, or a solid spatula.
I added a heart sprinkle to just one cookie before it baked, mostly for the photo (pretend that the cookie is straight, haha!), but of course you can add one to each cookie if you'd like:)
Happy Earth Day!
