Gold Coin Cookies themed for Saint Patrick's Day or Pirate themed event is a favorite are easy to make and yummy.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • Sugar cookie dough
  • Yellow food coloring
  • Yellow sugar spinkles


I used a ready-made sugar cookie dough for my gold coin cookies. You can use your favorite sugar cookie recipe as well. Add four drops of yellow food coloring to start and knead the cookie dough until it is evenly yellow in color. If kneading has made your dough sticky, refrigerate for one hour.

Make one-inch balls. Place 12 on a cookie sheet, flatten slightly and sprinkle with yellow sugar sprinkles. Notch around the sides with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 10-12 minutes.
