Eggless Colour Pencil Cookies

I have already tried many varieties of cookies but still they do exist many which are quite creative, interesting, cute and effortless cookies. One of my recent bake is these attractive shaped cookies aka Colour Pencil cookies. Actually i baked this cookies for an event, as a member of this baking group i baked this colour pencil as this event goes for weekly baking. When i saw this colour pencil cookies, i couldnt resist myself to bake some. Obviously i opted for an eggless version though the original recipe calls for an egg yolk. However even without egg, this cute cookies came out absolutely buttery.

Divide again  one of the half dough into 4 equal sized portions.

Add drops of  different colours to each of the portions of dough.

Knead well the colour to the dough completely.

Dust the work surface with flour and roll the uncolored portion of the dough into a rectangle.

Pinch out 2 to 3 small sized portions of each coloured dough and make a sausage like log of 3 mm diameter 4 to 5 inches long.

Place each coloured sausage in one corner of the uncolored rolled out sheet of dough.

Wrap the coloured dough and close it well with the uncoloured dough.

Cut it where it covers and pull it to work.

 Roll it smoothly  using  your fingers and seal well the edges.

Repeat the same with the remaining dough. Transfer them carefully to the already prepared baking tray.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes . Cool on wire rack

Let it cool completely.

Once completely cool,  use a blade or kitchen knife to sharpen the cookies. Hold a cookie using the index finger of your left hand and start sharpening.

Do it gently else you will break the cookies.
