  • 1
    Line 3 cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper or silicone nonstick baking mats. Place each sugar in separate small bowl; set aside.
  • 2
    Cut cookie dough into 21 slices. Cut each slice in half; roll each half into a ball.
  • 3
    Roll 9 balls in blue sugar, completely coating dough; place on cookie sheets. Roll half of remaining balls in red sugar; place on cookie sheets. Roll remaining balls in granulated sugar; place on cookie sheets. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, heat oven to 350°F.
  • 5
    Once balls are chilled, bake 7 to 8 minutes or until cookies no longer have a glossy sheen. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks; cool completely, about 15 minutes.

    On serving tray, arrange blue cookies to look like blue on American flag. Arrange rows of red and white cookies to complete appearance for a total of 5 rows of 8 cookies each. Eat the remaining 2 cookies!

  • You can find blue and red sugars at most grocery and craft stores leading up to the Fourth of July.
  • Instead of dipping the cookies in the blue sugar, make them all red and white. Then arrange them in the flag shape, but place a bowl full of blue-tinted whipped topping in the corner for a sweet cookie dip.
