Description:

Red White and Blue Cookies that are festive and delicious!


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • red and blue food coloring
  • golden star sprinkles, if desired

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix the butter and both sugars together for 2 minutes on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add in the egg, vanilla, salt, and baking soda and continue mixing for 1 minute until smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  3. Turn the mixer to low and add in the flour, mixing until just incorporated.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips evenly.
  5. Divide the cookie dough into 3 equal portions. Using the food coloring, color one portion of the dough red, and the other blue, leaving one uncolored.
  6. Roll each dough into approximately a 15-inch rope. Place the three next to each other on a large piece of cling wrap. Wrap the cling wrap up tightly, pressing the doughs together forming a large log. Remove the cling wrap and breaking off the dough with your hands into approximately 2-tablespoon portions. Roll the dough into a loose ball and place it onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 9 minutes or until the edges are set. Don’t over bake these!!
  7. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 3-4 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. If desired sprinkle with star sprinkles, pressing them gently into the warm cookie.

Notes:

Be careful to not over bake these. There is a slightly larger amount of flour in these to ensure thickness, but if you bake them too long, they will get very firm. The cookies might even seem under-baked when you remove them from the oven. This is fine.
