  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
  • Flour, butter and egg called for on cookie mix pouch for cutout cookies
  • Pink and purple gel food colours
  • 2 tablespoons coarse white sparkling sugar


  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix cookie mix, flour, butter and egg with spoon until soft dough forms. Divide dough into 3 pieces. Place 2 pieces of dough into 2 small bowls. Tint 1 bowl pink and 1 bowl purple by stirring in each food colour.
  • 3
    On floured surface, drop tablespoons of each dough in random pattern to make large rectangle. Dough pieces should be just touching together. Push dough rectangle toward centre on all sides to make 6x5-inch rectangle. Roll dough 1/4 inch thick to create marbled pattern. Cut with 3-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter; place cutouts 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle with sugar. Press any leftover scraps together, and reroll on floured surface to make more cookies.

    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from baking sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    To help get cutout cookie shapes to the cookie sheet, lightly press back of cookie spatula in flour, and slide under cookie dough for easy lifting.
  • Tip 2
    No sparkling sugar? Try granulated sugar to add extra sparkle to holiday cookies.
  • Tip 3
    Wearing food-safe plastic gloves makes mixing food colour in the cookie dough easier and will not stain hands! Single use plastic gloves can be found at most large retailers.
  • Tip 4
    The more cookies are rolled, the more marbled the cookies become!
