  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix, prepared as per package directions
  • Liquid food colouring, as desired
  • Rainbow sprinkles, if desired


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    For rainbow pinwheels, divide dough evenly into five bowls, and colour each with a different colour liquid food colouring. (We used neon shades in pink, green, blue, yellow and purple.
  • 3
    Roll each colour dough into 14 grape-sized balls.
  • 4
    Combine a ball of each colour and quickly roll into a larger ball. It will look like a little beachball.
  • 5
    Then roll that ball between your hands and the counter or cutting board until you have a cylinder about 6 inches long.
  • 6
    Starting from one end of the cylinder, roll the dough into a coil, twisting the cylinder as you go.
  • 7
    Roll edges of the cookie in sprinkles.
  • 8
    Repeat with remaining cookies.
  • 9
    Bake the cookies for 10 to 11 minutes, or until done (fully done middle with the barest touch of golden brown on the edges).
