Happy New Year! Have you slept off your sugar coma yet? I for one, do not wish to see any cookies or chocolate for quite some time. That being said, this post is about cookies! =) Well, I meant to post this pre-Christmas, but didn't get to it. Sooooo, you will just have to remember it for next year.
Decorating sugar cookies is a fun thing for kiddos and adults to do. The traditional way is with frosting, but another fun way is to paint them! Mix food coloring into some evaporated milk. (the amounts don't matter) Grab a few paint brushes, (Preferably ones that are new and haven't been used for actual painting. Yuck!) one for each color.
Then let all your little helpers have at it! Paint the sugar cookies before cooking.
Cook as directed. The "paint" just make sort of a glaze as its baking. My 2 year old had tons of fun doing this, and it didn't really matter how much she used.
Good luck getting back onto the swing of things after all the holiday fun! Funky Junk Interiors is doing a great series right now on how to put those good intentions we all have for this new year into action. I'm great at making plans, but maybe not so good at accomplishing them!
