Every day is earth day in our house, but on Wednesday we went a little more intense than normal.
Michael took an Earth Day Pledge and has since failed on his “shorter showers” promise. Otherwise, he’s doing great.
We made some amazing cookies that were SO EASY. We picked a sugar cookie recipe on Pinterest (this one!), separated the dough into two bowls (go a little heavier for one of the bowls), and added food coloring (one bowl green, the bowl with more, blue, since Earth’s surface is 71% water). And mix, mix, mix.
Once you’ve got your colored dough bowls, pinch pieces of each dough color, combine them, (see below) and roll them lightly. If you roll them too much they’ll get marbled. Just a quick roll to combine should suffice.
Bake per the recipe’s instructions…
And, voila! Delicious and festive.
