Pinterest strikes again!
On Friday I wanted to do some baking for the weekend. I wanted to try something new, but still easy. I trawled through my 'yumminess' board on Pinterest and all thoughts of ease went out of my mind as I saw the rainbow scroll cookies I had pinned. They looked like so much fun!
So I gave it a go. And I must admit it took a while, and I did a few things wrong. Notes for next time:
- Use a sugar cookie receipe that doesn't crumble too much (mine specifically says it's crumbly!)
- Don't leave the balls sitting while you go to the doctor with your son. They need to be worked immediately.
- Might be better to try liquid food colouring not gel? Not sure? Would be worth experimenting.
Anyway, here they are at 'grape sized ball size'....
From here, you grab one of each colour and quickly roll into another large ball, then roll out into a long 'worm', before making a scroll. This is where it went wrong for me as the dough was very crumbly by the time I got around to doing this....
Still. They turned out 'ok'.
But more importantly they looked amazing and the kids LOVE them.
