Are you looking for a Fun 4th of July Recipe for your cookout an celebrations? We put together these simple American Flag Cookies Recipe with just a few simple ingredients and I wanted to quickly share how you can make your own!
I’m kinda a cheater when it comes to recipes, I love making things that look homemade without the trouble, and when you’re in a hurry (Read, Busy Mom of 3 Kids) You do what you can to keep things simple. So I used the Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix because it’s my Favorite and then colored half of the dough Red and Half Blue, then I made a second batch and left it white so that I could create the flag pattern I wanted.
Then I used a Loaf Pan to measure out even squares, You need 3 Red, 3 White that are the same size as the loaf pan, then 4 Blue that are Half the Width of the larger rectangles. (You’re actually going to cut one of each of the larger Red & White pieces in half so you have 2 large and 2 small of each color)
Next Layer your Pieces together, You’ll layer White, Red, White Red, Then use the Half Pieces and layer Half Blue/Half White, Half Blue/Half Red, Half Blue/Half White & Finally Half Blue/Half Red.
You’ll want to place it in the Fridge to harden before cutting into slices.
I used Dental Floss to cut my flags apart, If you have a sharp knife you can also use that, The Dental Floss is just quick and easy, the only thing I noticed is that the center point where the final cut happens is a little Swirled so you may have better luck with a Knife.
