These are pretty labor intensive and involve lots of time waiting for the dough to harden. It was a little tricky for me to tell when the cookies were fully cooked because they don’t brown like traditional sugar cookies. Also, if you feel uneasy about food dyes then this isn’t the recipe for you — I’m going to investigate them further because there seems to be a lot of controversy about them. I imagine that you could make different colors using something more natural than coloring gels.
