4th of July Spiral Cookies - these easy sugar cookies are rolled with red and blue sugar making them look like a firework! The perfect recipe for Independence Day!

I originally posted these cookies back in 2011 when Jordan was a Kindergartener. Now I’m updating the recipe and she’s graduating from the 8th grade this week. EEK! (The recipe is the same, the photos and content just need an update!)

This cookie recipe is my favorite one, I think, out of all of them. Sugar cookies are hands down my favorite but these? They’re EPIC.

The recipe is originally from some magazine – I think one of those kids ones that shows cute food themed for the holiday. I don’t have the magazine anymore but it was pre-2011 because I’d been making these a few years before I originally posted them on the site. I make them every 4th of July with red and blue sugar (and at Christmas with red and green).

Spiral Cookies are an easy sugar cookie recipe that are slice-and-bake, making them the perfect cookie for any occasion. The sugar inside dresses them up for any holiday!

There are so many spiral cookie recipes out there. I’ve seen them in different colors and different flavors, but this simple recipe with colored sugar is the best.

Spiral cookies taste like a sugar cookie but the recipe is just a bit different than a traditional sugar cookie recipe. They’re kind of a cross between basic sugar cookies and sugar cookie cutouts: they have the same butter and sugar ratios, but a few changes happen when you get to the flour and leavening.
