Colorful Play-Doh Cookies

Or Rainbow Cookies.  Or Lollipop Cookies.  Whatever you decide to call them, these are a treat for the little ones.  Fun to make and fun to eat.

Rainbow cookies for colorful desserts

I love that these cookies are versatile, too.  You can, of course, choose whichever colors you’d like.  You can insert a stick and make lollipops.  Wrap them up in cellophane bags and pretty ties for a sweet treat.  Try a red and green version for the holidays.  Let the kids shape them in some other creative way.  Lots of options.
