When I made these cookies, I had every intention of calling them "rainbow cookies." Something cute for Saint Patrick's Day. When I showed them to my eleven year old, she said, "Mom, those are NOT rainbow cookies."
I will admit that when she said that I took no offense to it. Having an eleven year old with hormonal mood swings more frequently than I care to share has definetely caused me recently to grow a thicker skin. But after half a day in the kitchen prepping meals, I'll admit, I was a little bitter. And I may have given her back a little attitude.
"Really, than what ARE they?"
Yes, that was my regression moment.
"They are unicorn poop cookies. See? Look at Pinterest."
I was then accosted to seeing some of the cutest little edible unicorn poops I've ever seen. I mean, people REALLY have gotten into the pooping unicorn thing. Cupcakes, cookies, salads, you name it, it's there. All cute, and rainbowey and poopey.
Well, mine are NOT.
I used natural dyes in our cookies, than went on a city wide hunt to try to find the matching natural sprinkles to go with it after remembering I had run out. Realizing that the only natural food store that carried the ones I wanted was two days away by super saver shipping I opted to cave in and go for the artificial.
See regression up above. I'm on a roll today.
Because natural dyes tend to not be as flashy as the artificial dyes and gel colors, there is a little contrast on the pictures. Forgive me for my regression today.
