Painted Sugar Cookies

My kids LOVE to help in the kitchen!
Whether it's cracking eggs, rolling dough, or being the official 'frosting taster'....
they're very helpful;)

Here's an activity that they really get excited about....

Have you ever tried painting sugar cookies?

It's a very simple technique that you can apply to ANY sugar cookie recipe.

Simply mix 2 tsp corn syrup, 1/2 tsp water, and 2 drops of food coloring.
Scoop and flatten your sugar cookie dough to form a nice 'canvas'.

Then use clean paint brushes to paint your artsy image BEFORE you bake your cookies.
Bake following the normal temperature & bake time directions.
It's amazing how vibrant the colors are even after baking.

They are so HAPPY looking, aren't they?
This is such a fun way to personalize a birthday, anniversary, or thank-you treat!
Definitely a tasty, talked-about gift:)
