roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
cup all-purpose flour
Liquid food colors, as desired (red, purple, orange, yellow, pink)
cup colored sugar, as desired (red, purple, orange, yellow, pink)
jelly beans, cut in half horizontally


  1. 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour. Divide into 4 bowls; stir in food colors as desired until blended and color is even.
  2. 2 Work with 1 bowl of dough at a time, refrigerating remaining dough until needed. Shape dough into total of 12 (1 1/4-inch) balls; roll in colored sugar, and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. With thin sharp knife dipped into flour, cut each ball into 4, 6 or 8 wedges to get different flower shapes, cutting three-fourths of the way down into ball but not through bottom. Spread wedges apart very slightly to form flower petals (cookies will separate and flatten as they bake).
  3. 3 Bake 10 to 12 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.
