Make fancy spring flower cookies in no time with the help of Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookie dough!

Ingredients

1
roll Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
1/4
cup all-purpose flour
3
tablespoons each of at least 2 colored sugars (red, purple, orange, yellow, pink)
36
jelly beans

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough; thoroughly work in flour. Divide dough into 36 (1-inch) smooth, crease-free balls.
  • 2 Place colored sugars in separate medium bowls. One at a time, gently drop the balls into the sugar, and toss until evenly coated.
  • 3 Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. With thin sharp knife dipped into flour, cut each ball into 8 wedges, cutting three-fourths of the way down into ball but not through bottom. Gently indent center of each ball with thumb.
  • 4 Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until set and edges just begin to brown. Immediately press 1 jelly bean in center of each cookie. Cool 1 minute; carefully remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 10 minutes. Store in tightly covered container.

Expert Tips

For best results, work with half of the dough at a time, refrigerating it until needed.

Use nature as your inspiration for these flowers. For example, black jelly beans make black-eyed Susans with yellow sugar or poppies with red sugar.
