As an alternative to frosting or sugaring cookies, sometimes we like to paint them. When my girls were little, especially around major holidays, it was a good way to have them help with the baking, while providing a creative outlet. It's not messy and there are no decorating rules. Each cookie is an empty palette.
So, for anyone wishing to let their artistic talents bloom, here is the recipe.
Take one egg yolk, mix with 1/4 teaspoon water, then divide into small portions and add food coloring. Mix. Grab a brush. Paint.
I expect to see glorious painted cookies on everyone's blog now.
