LET’S MAKE SOME WITCHES BREW HALLOWEEN BUTTER COOKIES!
Roll out each portion of dough between sheets of wax paper.
Leave the bottom piece of wax paper on the green dough; take off the top piece of wax paper. Take off the top piece of wax paper on the black dough and place on top of the green dough (remove the remaining piece of wax paper on the black dough). Take off the bottom piece of wax paper of the purple dough and place on top of the black dough (remove the remaining wax paper). You should be left with a piece of wax paper on the bottom of the dough. This will help with the rolling process.
Use the wax paper to help roll the cookie dough into a jelly roll. Refrigerate 2 hours.
Witches Brew Halloween Butter Cookies
- 1-1/4 cups butter, softened
- 2/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- food coloring green, purple, black
- sugar sprinkles (optional) 4T of green and purple, 2T black
In a large mixing bowl add the butter and sugars. Beat until smooth, add vanilla, beat again until combined. In a large mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, beat until combined (do not over mix). Divide into 3 (8.5 ounce) balls. Add gel food coloring to a dough ball (in small amounts, better at have to add more). Knead the coloring into the dough. Set aside and continue with the remaining dough. Roll out each portion of dough between sheets of wax paper into a rectangle about 11 x 8-1/2-inches. Peel wax paper and lay layers on top of each other in color order (green, black, purple). Leave the wax paper at the bottom of the bottom layer to help with the rolling process. Roll into a jelly roll. Form back into a 12-in roll. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Place sprinkles into a 9x13 pan, roll the log until completely covered.
Preheat oven to 325°. Slice the log into 1/4 inch thick cookies and bake on parchment lined baking sheets for 15 to 17 minutes.
