Let kids play Jackson Pollock by squeezing drops of liquid food coloring onto large squares of dough and then using a straw to blow the color around. Layer colors until the abstract "painting" is complete.

Cook's Notes

Since this cookie is so buttery, keep the dough well chilled so it's easier to work with.

    Good Grief people! The cookies are baked after being painted! Just like bread dough is baked after kneading! Besides, what's an immune system for? Jeez!

    Blowing on the cookie!!! Omg. This is why I never eat childrens birthday cake after they "blow" out the candles. Maybe I am sounding a bit like Howard Hughes in his last days, but eeek, I would not blow on cookies I serve, nor eat blown cookies! Oh, my.

    Try fanning with a hand held fan. You could use a small piece of cardboard.

    Martha Stewart, sometimes you never cease to amaze me. I would not even think of buying a cookie that had been blown on from a bakery. PLEASE.

    Instead of blowing on the cookie try using toothpicks to move the dye around or brand new paint brushes and then dedicate those to only to cookies
