Fingerpainted Cookies

Visit our new printable recipes section to print this recipe on 3x5, 4x6 or full page.

We took sugar cookie dough that I purchased out of the refrigerator Activities at the grocery store.  (or you can make your own)

We cut it into 1/4' slices (you can squish slightly into an egg shape).

Then we took an egg white and mixed food coloring in it.   (light blue or pink are nice)

The kids "fingerpainted" eggs onto the cookies.  If you make a single thumbprint and add two pinkie finger ears, it looks like a bunny!

Even my 20 month old could do this with supervision.  He loved it.


Note:  spread your favorite icing, jam or pie filling on the bottom of one cookie and stack on a second cookie to make an "oreo" type cookie
