I can say this with pure confidence: The beauty of sugar cookies lies in their simplicity.

The coolest thing to me about these tasty white cookies is just how easy they are to “dress up.” You can decorate them by slathering on icing, dumping on sprinkles, or even experimenting with crazy cookie-cutter shapes.

If you ask me, decorating sugar cookies is almost as fun as eating them. After all, the only word I could possibly use to describe the experience of squeezing icing from a tube is “thrilling.”

For this reason, making sugar cookies is an activity to be shared. Grab a friend, a sibling, your spouse — you name it! — and embark on this one-of-a-kind culinary experience.

Whether you are looking to whip up some fancy, themed cookies for a specific holiday or want a sweet bakery treat to accompany fresh fruit in the summertime, sugar cookies are always the perfect choice. And the good news is you don’t need a special occasion or any fancy additives to make these vibrant marble cookies!

Check out the simple six-step recipe below to learn how you can bring color into your kitchen with just a few drops of food coloring, a cookie cutter, and a rolling pin. These decorative and delicious, marble sugar cookies are sure to be a family favorite from the first batch!
