Colorful and fun Green and Red Cookies are easy when you start with our refrigerated tub dough and dress it up with a quick and easy holiday touch of red and green food coloring. No two cookies will look the same but all will be very festive!
- 1 package (16.5 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Bar Dough, slightly softened
- Red and green food coloring
PREHEAT oven to 325° F.
BREAK dough in half. Stir food coloring into each cookie dough half to desired shade. Refrigerate for 15 minutes for easier handling. Divide each colored dough into 24 pieces. Press 2 different colored pieces of dough together; roll into 24, 1 1/4-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE for 12 to 13 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and set but centers are still soft. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
• Food coloring paste or gel will result in more intensely colored cookies. Try coloring one half of the dough either red or green and leaving the other half plain.
• Recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for a larger batch.
Review This Recipe
I can definitely see us making these with different colors for different holidays/birthdays. We used gel food coloring and the colors were very vibrant. The kids had a blast rolling them together!
Not the best
This was the first recipe that I tried from the 12 Days of Cookies. I was sure that they would be eye catching. Maybe I overcooked them or maybe it was because I used drop food coloring instead of paste, but the color was just not what I expected. The flavor was delicious, but I wouldn't make these again because they just did not look up to our Christmas standard for cookies.

Delicious and easy to make. Just make sure to wear gloves when mixing in the food coloring. Otherwise you'll have colorful hands.
