DIRECTIONS:

1: Heat oven to 350°F.  Divide dough in half. Crumble each half of the dough into 2 separate bowls.

2:  In one bowl, add 2 tablespoons of the flour and a bit of the green food color. Stir or knead until well mixed. Add more coloring as desired.

3:  In the other bowl, add 2 tablespoons of the flour and a bit of the red food color. Stir or knead until well mixed. Add more coloring as desired.

4: Shape into 44 (1-inch) balls. Add powdered sugar to a small bowl and roll each ball in powdered sugar. Place balls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

5: Bake 8 to 11 minutes or until tops are cracked and edges are set. Cool 2 minutes then remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Store in covered container at room temperature.

Darlene’s Tips: You can dip the cookies into powdered sugar again when you remove them from the rack for an extra sugary coating. Shake of the excess then place on cooling racks. You can use liquid food coloring instead of get but the red cookies will be more pink. Gel will give you a better red. You can always add some chopped nuts to the dough when you are kneading it. You can do this with any flavor cookie dough, even cookie dough that you make from scratch.
