Cute slice of summer

I had this cookie mix that I needed to use. So I dreamed up a summery way to use it. You can use a homemade dough or even ready made dough for this recipe.
One pouch made enough dough to fit one mold.
So you will need:
Sugar cookie dough
Homemade mold(see below)
Chocolate sprinkles
Red and green food coloring

For a mold I used an empty Crystal light container. I liked this container because I could put the lid back on it to give extra support. However, a toilet paper or paper towel roll would be better in size. You could use masking tape over the open top for more support to keep the shape. Whatever you use cut of 1/3 of the top.
Dye 1/3 of the dough green and the rest red. Place wax paper in mold. Then press green dough into mold, pushing dough up the sides. Fill with red dough.

Cover and freeze for 1/2 hour or refrigerate until firm.
Remove dough from mold and cut into slices.

Bake as directed in recipe. (I love parchment paper for baking.)

During the last 30 seconds of baking sprinkle the red part of the cookie with chocolate sprinkles.

Yummy, it's like little slices of summer.
