I made these Care Bear themed rainbow cookies to put in the kids' goodie bags at my daughter, Carissa's, 4th birthday party.
To make these rainbow cookies I mixed up some sugar cookie dough which I then separated into 3 sections. I used food coloring to tint one ball of dough pink, one ball of dough yellow, and one ball of dough blue. I set the yellow and blue aside for a bit and worked with the pink first.
I thinned the pink dough with some water to get a consistency that I could pipe the dough using a piping bag & decorating tip. I used a medium sized round tip and piped the large pink arcs of the rainbows onto some parchment paper. After I was done piping the pink arcs I thinned the yellow dough and piped the yellow arcs. Then I did the same thing for the blue dough. After all the rainbows were complete I baked the cookies.
I thought they looked pretty cute, and it was a neat alternative to painting them or using icing to get the different colors.
Below is a progression of piping the cookies, and the finished product once baked. :)
