One of my favorite ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with my son by making a healthy meal that's filled with greens the color of shamrocks. Then we top off the feast with a sweet treat: organic rainbow cookies! Learn how to make these sweet little treasures in and of themselves!
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
- 2 3/4 cup organic flour
- 3/4 cup organic butter
- 3 ounces organic cream cheese
- 1 cup organic sugar
- 1 organic egg
- 1 tsp organic vanilla
- 1 tsp organic baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- natural vegetable food colorants
Step 2: Beat It
Beat the butter, cream cheese and sugar on medium speed, until well combined and fluffy. Then, add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
Step 3: Mix It
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl and mix together with a spoon.
Step 4: Make the Dough
Add the dry mixture to the creamy mixture and mix until a dough ball forms. Then, divide your dough ball into 4 smaller dough balls. Add the natural colorants to each ball drop by drop until you reach the desired color mixture. I was going for yellow, red, blue and green – however, my blue turned into more of a turquoise – which is okay.
