This is only what's left (read: rejects I didn't take to the chili cook off), but the kids and I made two different types of cookies yesterday. The first was a lime cookie dusted in powdered sugar which I found on Martha's website. She does a cookie of the day thing. The other cookie recipe also came from her website. I think she called them Art Cookies, or something like that. "Each one is a masterpiece" or some phrase like that. Anyway, I call them tie dye cookies. Basically you make sugar cookie dough, roll it out, cut squares with a pizza cutter, and then let the kids put one drop of dye on each dough square at a time. Then they blow through a straw onto the dye to make it move around on the dough. Some of their creations looked really cool. I'm sorry I didn't get a picture of all of them before we left for the cook off (of which I was one of the winners! Yay!).
So while this is a kid-friendly cookie making activity, Emma is sadly still too young to participate. She started drinking the dye and her right arm is still yellow. Emma was, well, Emma yesterday.
