    Pinay0618's Note:

    I'm not much of a cookie baker - I lack the patience! While planning a baby shower for a friend, I found this recipe at Land O Lakes, and the colors were just so beautiful and spring-like I had to make them. They were a hit, and have satisfied any cookie baking urges I might have in the next year or so :) Preparation time includes chilling time.

      These were very tasty. I found that I used a lot of bowls mixing the different colours. It was worth it though to bake a tasty and original cookie. Next time I will add a little more food colouring as the strips were a tad bit to pale for me. Thanks so much for sharing. Sent for the Holiday Cookie Exchange 2009
