I made the dough and colored it red, white, green and blue.
After it was in the fridge for about an hour, I made small one inch balls.
Then just flattened them down with the bottom of a glass.
I also rolled the colored dough in sprinkles.
Here is a set of Red, White and Blue cookies that you could make for the 4th of July! I think they would be cute with a red top, blue bottom and white frosting in the middle as a cookie sandwich.
And here is the red, white and green for Christmas!
These are really delicious cookies, I think the Almond extract in the cookie is perfect but you can always change flavors and use peppermint, lemon, etc.
