Paint Your Own Cookies

I just had to share this fab idea for cookies – with the school holidays fast approaching, what a fun way to spend an afternoon with the kids. Plus at the end of it everyone gets cookies!

What you will need:
Cookie dough (home made or shop-bought)
Egg yolks
Food colouring – colours of your choice!
Sugar sprinkles (optional)
Cookie cutters
Small paint brushes

  1. Begin by preparing the paints. In a small bowl (one for each colour), place one egg yolk and a few drops of food colouring of choice. Mix well. Repeat for each colour. Set aside.
  2. Make dough, roll out cookies and cut. Now paint. Be sure to use a separate brush for each colour or you may end up with a lot of brown cookies 🙂
  3. When finished painting all of your cookies, bake according to recipe directions.

And voilà – it really is that simple!

Thanks to for the great idea!
