How to make Mexican Sugar Cookies

Beat butter with sugar in a stand mixer at medium to high speed for 30 seconds. 

In a large bowl mix flour, baking soda, spices, and salt. Using a mixer (use the paddle attachment) add dry ingredients to the butter-sugar mixture and blend until the dough is pliable. 

The dough may be a little crumbly, knead dough to hold together.
 Divide dough in half. Add a couple of drops of red food coloring and work into the dough with your hands until the desired color. Do the same with the second half of dough using the yellow food coloring( or any color you want) **food coloring may dye hands.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll balls in ½ cup of sugar (or cinnamon sugar). Place the balls 2 inches apart on parchment-lined cookie sheets and gently flatten with the bottom of a glass jar.
