Here's a good (easy) letter R recipe -- it also makes a nice St. Patrick's day idea.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 egg
- Food coloring-at least 6 colors (make sure one of them is Red!)
remember - with red, blue and yellow you can make all the other colors.
Mix sugar, butter, egg and vanilla. Add flour and mix well.
Divide dough into six balls.
Add a different food coloring to each ball.
Roll each ball in a snake shape onto a floured surface. This is fun for the kids -- just like playdough!
Arch snake shape and press onto cookie sheet.
Add other snake shapes until the rainbow is formed. (OR! Form a letter R shape with them)
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-15 minutes.
When cooled let each child taste a piece of the rainbow.
