My new office is hosting an open house this week. Our Director came up with the idea of a one-way cookie exchange for our guests. So we basically bring in cookies and give them away.

So being one of the newbies and all, I decided to try something a little more inspired.

Behold! My new twist on the sugar cookie:

First I separated the dough into 3 and left one white, and dyed the other 2 red & green.

I used basic, liquid food colouring instead of the Wilton this time. The red is a bit pinky so next time I will try the Wilton.

I let the dough chill for about an hour. Then I rolled each colour out between 2 sheets of slightly floured waxed paper. I had never tried that before and it worked so great!

Next I layered the 3 and rolled them up like a cinnamon bun:

I chopped off the ends for a cleaner look. Next I rolled my "cookie burrito" in some sprinkles, covered it in plastic wrap and put it back in the fridge.

Not one to let anything go to waste, I put the remaining dough in my cookie press:

And I made some bonus cookies:

And when cooked:

I let my burrito chill overnight. Today I took it out and made some cookie slices:

Once sliced, I popped them into the oven for a few minutes:

And, voilà! My very own Pinterest success!!

I think they turned out pretty good. Maybe not 100% how I had envisioned but pretty close.

Next challenge: making birthday cupcakes for my too soon to be 2 year old!
