Perfect for a Rainy day... Rainbow Sugar Cookie Dough

We love baking!  It brings us together, we get to be creative, it's fun and yummy.
When the weather makes you feel like you are on lockdown indoors... this is fun to do with the kids after they have eaten a healthy lunch! I make sugar cookie dough.  The best recipe can be found here.   The dough is easy to work with, it doesn't have to be chilled and the cutouts are always perfect.  I never have to add more flour.  We also enjoy Wilton icing colors in concentrated paste.  I have a rainbow of colors, but food coloring can work just as well!

We divide the dough up and color it.  The kids have fun tasting and building their cookies.
Our sweetness gets in on the action!

Matthew loves to mix the colors.

Joe loves eating his creations. Each one has a story. Take the time to listen and enjoy your children.  The house cleaning can wait, and they will be this young for a short time.  Make sugar cookie dough, color it and get in on the fun!

This never gets old for us and it is really fun to see what the kiddos come up with.  I purchased some little cutters that can be used with fondant and we made owls and other little animals. Did I tell you that my little Joe is an amazing artist?!
