Bake sales are wonderful fundraisers for causes close to our hearts, and these melt-in-your-mouth ribbon-shaped Pink Ribbon Cookies were created especially with Breast Cancer Awareness events in mind. Even if you aren't having a bake sale, these sugar cookies are great for sharing.

What You'll Need

  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (16-ounce) container vanilla frosting
  • 1 to 2 drops red food color

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; beat 1 to 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour and beat 2 minutes, or until well blended.
  2. Form dough into 2 balls; cover and chill at least 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  4. On a lightly floured work surface, using a rolling pin, roll 1 ball of dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a ribbon cookie cutter or a knife, cut ribbon shapes out of dough (see photo). Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
  5. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies are golden around the edges. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. In a medium bowl, combine frosting and red food color; mix well then frost cooled cookies.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have thought about it for Lupus Awareness Month which is in May and the color is purple I can't wait to try this. Thanks so much.

i would not roll the dough of these into balls. they are then to thin to cut into shapes. divide the dough in half then chill for an hour or so. i would also add a touch of almond extract for a tastier cookie.

Have you checked wherever cooking items are sold like wal-mart, K-Mart, Sears, etc or dollar stores, if you google it, there are plenty of choices and they can be used for so much more than Breast Cancer Awareness.

Where can I get the ribbon cookie cutter?

You can get one from the Cancer Council for Pink Ribbon from
