Earth Day Sugar Cookies Recipe

Celebrate Earth Day with this fun and colorful cookie recipe. Ready-made cookie dough makes preparation and clean-up a breeze.

Author: Three Snackateers
  • 1 roll Pillsbury Refrigerated Sugar Cookies 16.5 oz
  • 1 pkg Green and Blue AmeriColor Soft Gel Paste Food Coloring
  • 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
  1. Divide the cookie dough evenly into 2 bowls.

  2. Start coloring your dough by adding about 3 drops of green food coloring to one bowl and 3 drops of blue to other. Remember, you can always add more color, but you can’t take it away! Continue add a drop at a time until you achieve the color you like. 

  3. Mix the dough with a spoon or your hands until all food coloring is combined and your dough is an even and consistent color. Sprinkle in a bit of flour if your dough starts to get a sticky.

  4. Pull out pieces of dough from each color and start shaping into a ball, patching if necessary to create an Earth effect.

  5. Place the cookie dough onto baking sheets and bake according to the directions on the sugar cookie packaging. 

Tips, Tricks and Tools
  1. I achieved the gorgeous coloring in my cookies with only a few drops of AmeriColor Soft Gel Paste. I’ve used all types of food colorings in the past, but I swear by AmeriColor. The colors are so vibrant and the consistency of the gel makes it really easy to add just a drop at a time. The colors blend quickly and easily. I HIGHLY recommend you give them a try. Tons of colors and sets are available on Amazon!

  2. Change up the colors of these cookies to fit any occasion! Imagine the possibilities for your child’s school colors, to celebrate holidays or even get crazy with lots of colors with tie-dye cookies! 



About The Author


Confession: I’m obsessed with snacks. I have been for as long as I can remember. Ask anyone that knows me for a fun fact and the word ‘cupcake’ will probably come up. I’m known to keep sprinkles in my purse because you never know when the occasion may call for them. I always look at the dessert menu before ordering dinner. For fun I love to spend hours in the grocery stores scouting new and interesting foods. I love baking, but hate cooking. And I’m so lucky that my husband and little girl love sweets as much as I do!
