Baby Sugar Swirls

These are a really simple cookie that can easily be dressed up for any occassion. I love them because even you don't have to have a steady icing hand or know how to make icing roses to make a pretty cookie. So, here goes....

Baby Sugar Swirls
2 c flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
2/3 c powdered sugar
1/4 cup Splenda
1 1/4c Healthy Choice Buttery Spread
1 tsp vanilla OR almond
Food coloring
1 Canister of color sprinkles (or any confection)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put parchement paper down on your cookie sheet.
2. Combine all dry ingredients. Then, add the butter in using your stand up mixer. While mixing, add your extract. Once combined removed half the batter and put in a small bowl in the freezer.
3. Add a few drops of food coloring and mix until you reach the desired color.
4. On a countertop, put down a sheet of clear wrap. Remove your dough from the freezer and place on the clear wrap. Put the colored dough in the bowl and place in the freezer.
5. Flatten the dough on the clear wrap a bit and then place a piece of wax paper (or another cling wrap) and roll out to about 1/4" thick. Remove cover dough from the freezer and repeat the process.
6. Once both have been rolled out, place the rolled colored dough ontop of the other. Roll up from the longest side. Now, roll up in clear wrap and place back in the freeze for about 10 minutes.
7. Remove from freezer, roll in your sprinkles and slice 1/2" cookies. Place on your parchment lined cookie sheet  and bake for 15 minutes.
