Don’t let the name of these cookies scare you off- these are 100% edible cookies! They just look like play doh, and you get to play with them like you’re a little kid again. And let me tell ya- your kids are gunna LOVE making these cookies!
How to Make Play Doh Cookies
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons almond extract
5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
gel food coloring
Start by creaming the butter, sugar, and cream cheese. Then add the eggs and almond extract. Stir until smooth. In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients, and add to the butter mixture. Color as desired and roll into 2 inch balls. Cover and refrigerate for 2+ hours. When firm, shape as desired (directions below for how to make Sacred and Immaculate Heart cookies). Preheat oven to 350. Sprinkle the top of each cookie with white sugar, and cook for 12-15 minutes or until cookies begin to brown on edges.
For the sacred heart cookies, I divided my dough in quarters. I made one quarter red, one quarter pink, split one quarter between yellow and orange, and split the last quarter to make purple and left the last eighth white.
I found that the crown of thorns and roses stuck just fine, but the flames will fall off after the cookies are baked if you don’t stick them on really well.
the perfect cookies for a Catholic bake sale!
Lolipop cookies are just adorable!
