    KunmingCook's Note:

    You can use this colorful egg glaze with any sugar cookie recipe. Paintbrush cookies are an old Betty Crocker idea from the 50s. I grew up with them, and still love making them with my kids. It's fun to have festive, colorful, shaped cookies without using the too-sweet-for-my-taste icings and colored sugars. I don't have a photo to upload right now, but you can find some great ideas by searching for 'paintbrush cookies' using google images.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    batch

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 egg yolk
    • 1/4 teaspoon water
    • food coloring
    • 1 batch sugar cookie dough

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix egg yolk and water. (Double or triple amount if desired.).
    2. 2
      Using a muffin pan or other small cups, divide the 'paint' among several cups, and add food coloring, as desired, to each.
    3. 3
      Use creativity to blend seasonal colors. For example, blend a variety of shades of autumn leaves: 3 drops yellow, 3 drops yellow + 1 drop red, 2 drops red, 1 drop red + 1 drop green, 2 drops green, 1 drop green + 3 drops yellow, 2 drops yellow + 1 drop red + 1 drop green.
    4. 4
      Roll cookie dough, and cut with cookie cutters.
    5. 5
      Place cookies on greased cookie sheet.
    6. 6
      Using water color paintbrushes and egg yolk paint, decorate the cookies.
    7. 7
      Bake according to recipe instructions and cool on rack. If overbaked, the paint will brown and be less attractive.
