I have not tried this recipe. I got it from 1st Traveler's Choice Internet Cookbook. Pomegranate House Bed and Breakfast Granbury, Texas Specialty Recipe. These are beautiful pink cookies that have become very popular with our guests and are served daily at our B&B.

This recipe was originated in Lake Jackson Texas, by Sandy's Sweets about 20+ years ago. It is an awesome recipe and my nieces and nephews always ask me to make this recipe for special occassions. These cookies should come out puffy and swirled with the coloring, icing should be bright pink and creamy. This recipe is EXACT to the one that I have had for over 20 years. ENJOY!!
