These Magically Simple Earth Day Cookies, with only 4 ingredients, are the perfect way to honor Earth Day with the kids with a delicious treat.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat. Set aside.
Slice the tube of cookie dough in half and place into two bowls.
Add 3-4 drops of green food coloring to one bowl and 3-4 drops of blue to the other.
Knead the food coloring into the dough with your hands or a spoon until the color is evenly distributed. If necessary add more color, one drop at a time, until the desired color is achieved.
If the dough gets sticky, add a bit of the flour, a teaspoon at a time.
To make the Earth, scoop about 2 teaspoons of the blue dough and 2 teaspoons of green dough and start shaping then together into a ball that resembles Earth. It doesn’t have to be exact.
Place the cookies onto the prepared baking sheet about 2-inches apart.
Bake for 10-14 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges and on the bottom.
Cool on a wire rack and store, once cooled, in an airtight container.
