Rainbow Cookies

Someone posted this on the discussion group without a name.  Thanks so much to whoever it was!

Here's a good (easy) letter R recipe -- it also makes a nice St. Patrick's day idea.

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.
