Have you seen the Disney Pixar movie Inside Out yet? It just came out on DVD last week and I picked it up on a trip to Target. I think it has to be one of the best Pixar movies so far! The kids and I cuddled up on the couch after school with Inside Out cookies I made and watched it together. We laughed and someone (okay, it was me) may have cried. Inside Out is about feelings and evokes many of them throughout the movie. We have watched it at least once a day since I brought it home. Yes, it is one of THOSE movies.
If you know me well then you know I am a Target addict. My friends, my family and even people who follow me on social media know it to be true. Sadly when we moved last year we moved to a town that doesn't have a Target so almost every other day I drive to the next town over to get my fix. When I went on one of my visits last week I bought the Inside Out DVD, toilet paper, a few ingredients for cookies and that darn dollar spot gets me every time!
This cookie recipe is adapted from my sprinkle sugar cookie recipe. I added a few extra steps so that they would have all the colors of the Inside Out feeling characters (Joy, Disgust, Anger, Sadness and Fear). Find the full recipe below.
Gather all of the ingredients and a mixer. Start by creaming the butter and sugar.
Add an egg and mix until incorporated.
Then add in the baking powder, salt and vanilla.
Add flour one cup at a time and stir until well mixed.
Separate the dough into 5 different bowls and use the red, blue, green, purple and yellow food coloring to color the dough the five different colors of the Inside Out characters.
Roll each color of dough between two pieces of parchment or wax paper and then layer them on top of one another. Roll the parchment paper with the five layers to make a spiral log. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes until dough is hard enough to be sliced without loosing shape.
Slice the dough into pieces a little less than 1/2 an inch thick.
Put each slice into sugar and then flip before placing them onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9 minutes. Remove and place onto a wire rack to cool.
My kids thought the fun colors of these cookies were pretty awesome! They went on and on asking how I got all of the colors into one cookie. I made them while they were at school so next time I will have to make them with their help so they can see how I did it. Have you ever seen rainbow bread? That stuff used to fascinate me as a kid!
