This year I’m attending a Winter Olympics Party, and I’ve decided to bring some themed sugar cookies in honor of the event. Stacked on a large tray, these Olympic Ring cookies will certainly draw the eye and would be the perfect standout on a dessert table! Plus, if you’re hosting a Winter Olympics party, this easy-to-make dessert would work great as a favor. All you have to do is slip a cookie into individual cellophane bags! Follow my simple recipe below to make your own Olympic Ring cookies, and take a look at our other Winter Olympics Invitations and Party Favors for more hints on how to customize your get-together!
Materials (makes about 2 dozen cookies)
- 1 batch Mrs. Fields Sugar Cookie dough (courtesy of allrecipes.com)
- Rolling pin
- Extra flour
- 1 large circle cookie cutter
- 1 small circle cookie cutter
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 6-7 tbsp water
- Red, blue, yellow, green and black food coloring
- Cooling rack
- Make one batch of Mrs. Fields Sugar Cookie dough according to the directions (click on link for recipe), and preheat the oven to 325°F.
- After cooling the dough for several hours, spread flour on your rolling surface and roll the dough to ¼” thickness.
- Then, use the large and small cookie cutters to make rings. Place the cookies on an ungreased sheet, and bake for 13-15 minutes. Immediately remove the cookies from the tray to cool.
- While the cookies are cooling, make the colored icing. Mix the powdered sugar and water, and divide the icing among five separate small bowls. Add a different food coloring to each bowl until they are your desired color.
- Using a large spoon, spread the icing on the tops and sides of the cooking, allowing the icing to harden for 1-2 hours.
- Display your cookies on a white tray, or slip them into individual cellophane bags for a quick and easy favor.
