    Cecily Parsley's Note:

    Snipped out of a Taste of Home holiday magazine, and glued onto a recipe card. Fun to make with older (9-12 age group) kids and really cute standing among a tray of Christmas cookies. I suggest using egg cups or custard cups to mix the three separated tablespoons of coloured dough in, to cut down on cleanup.
