These Red, White and Blue Striped Cookie Rolls are great for those patriotic holidays: Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Patriots Day and Veterans Day. Or change up the colors and use them for other occasions.
On the first Thursday of the month my friends and I at Fill the Cookie Jar bake some cookies and share them with you on our blogs. Our theme this month is summer. And here in the U.S. we have Memorial Day, Flag Day and Independence Day all in a 5 week period. So patriotic cookies won out for me. Be sure to scroll below the recipe to see what the others made.
I made the mistake of attempting to bake these before school one morning. I knew it was going to be a busy day and I thought I could just whip them out and photograph later. The best laid plans…
I wasn’t messing with dainty stripes with the second batch – big and bold! At least they came out well enough that I could photograph them later. The pictures of the steps were bad. Hopefully my description below will suffice. I may remake them someday and add the step by step photos.
The recipe isn’t hard, you just don’t want to do it when you are distracted because you need to watch them (or at least set the timer!) so they do not overbake.
Make sure you take some time to see what the other home bakers have been creating.
