Rainbow Cookies

Have you been as fascinated as I with all of the rainbow cakes and pancakes? What about some rainbow cookies? Perfect for St. Patrick's Day - don't you think?
 I started with a bag of sugar cookie mix, but the refrigerated dough or even, heaven forbid, a sugar cookie dough from scratch would work.

Roll the mixed dough in a log and divide it in 6 equal pieces. Add a couple of drops of color to each section. (I used the standard grocery store colors) I started mixing the yellow and worked my way to the purple, washing my hands between each color.
Flatten each color and place them between sheets of waxed paper. Roll the dough about as flat as possible.
Stack the colors on top of each other in this order: 
 Roll the stack so the the yellow is on the outside. Chill in the refrigerator for an hour, then slice. (I turned the roll between each cut so that I didn't have a flat side) Cut each slice in half.
 Place the cookies on a cookie sheet and bake according to the directions on the mix/dough/recipe. Make sure you don't overcook them as the yellow has a tendency to brown.
 Perfect for serving to all those leprechauns lurking around your house.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Like my Not "Baaad" rules explain, the linkies are randomly reused, which gets extra exposure for your blog. Link up once - get posted (and ideally, visited) many times :)

Here is the cut/paste explanation:
Do you ever find yourself trying not to duplicate posts on blog hops but aren't quite sure what you posted the previous weeks? Problem solved! The Linky from today will return one day, making it easy to see what you've already posted (and giving you a 2nd chance to visit any great posts you may have missed!)

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention. Sbobet, Online Casino Basketball Equipment Trips To Italy
