DIRECTIONS

  • Mix egg yolk and water. (Double or triple amount if desired.).
  • Using a muffin pan or other small cups, divide the 'paint' among several cups, and add food coloring, as desired, to each.
  • 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.
  • Roll cookie dough, and cut with cookie cutters.
  • Place cookies on greased cookie sheet.
  • Using water color paintbrushes and egg yolk paint, decorate the cookies.
  • Bake according to recipe instructions and cool on rack. If overbaked, the paint will brown and be less attractive.
