These sugar cookies are COLORFUL just like a rainbow…the VIBRANT colors just CHEER me up! 😀

They are also very THIN and CRISPY.

The KEY to making them so crispy is to roll out the cookie dough very thin.

You can use whatever roll-out sugar cookie recipe you like but I used my small batch sugar cookie recipe coz it’s simply the BEST!

I also JAZZED them up by dipping them in melted chocolate and covering them in sprinkles.

My regular readers may RECOGNIZE these cookies from my son’s Baby Einstein birthday party from a few years ago.

The guests went CRAZY for them… I didn’t even have any leftovers! hehehe 😉

    Abeer, the recipe calls for gel coloring. Can I use my neon food coloring and get similar results? These look great!

      I use gel colorings because they are very thick and do not affect the consistency of the dough. Neon food colorings are really “liquiddy” and that could make a sticky mess. So, I don’t recommend it 🙁 You can easily find gel colorings at Hobby Lobby or even Walmart 🙂
