Galaxy Cookies #Recipe


These fun galaxy cookies are perfect for movie night with the family!   Now that Wrinkle In Time is almost out, these would be perfect fun treat for the kids!


Ingredients:
  • Betty Crocker® Sugar Cookie Mix Pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) 
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, margarine  softened (not melted)
  • 1 egg. 
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • White starts/ pearly ball sprinkles, etc.
  • Violet, Teal, and Black food coloring (I used Black food paste as it was cheaper then buying Black food coloring)
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 °(or 350 ° for dark or nonstick cookie sheet).   I like to bake my cookies on a silicone liner or parchment paper.
     

  2.  Prepare cookies following instructions on the back of the package
     

  3. Separate the dough  into 3 separate bowls.
       

  4. Add the teal food color into one bowl, the violet color into the other, and the black into the remaining dough. Mix well.  I did more black then the other two colors.  This gets MESSY.  I would suggest not letting the kids help at this point.  My hands were covered in food coloring from mixing and mashing!
      

  5.  Next grab a small portion of dough from each color and mix together.  Roll into a ball and then lightly smash down with your hand.
     
  6. I tried three different methods to get these cookies.   One was  rolling the ball in a sugar/silver sugar mixture.  Two was placing white pearls on the cookies and the third was sprinkling the silver sprinkles on the cookies.
  7.  Place dough 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet (I lined mine with parchment paper).
  8. Bake 7 to 9 minutes (for larger cookies, 8 to 10 minutes) or until edges are light golden brown. 
  9. Let cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet. Cool completely; store in airtight container.
