Ocean Cookies

This easy sheet-pan swirl technique creates an ocean on top of cookies for sharks to swim through. Here, we use blue, white, green and teal food coloring but you can use any shades of blue or green you have on hand. This same technique would work as well to create fun tie-dye cookies in whatever colors you like. What's more, the simple sugar cookie recipe can be used for any type of cut-out shapes.
