Ah, Food Coloring
I made some Christmas Thumbprint Cookies this week. The kind you bake most of the way, and then stick your thumb into to make a depression to receive a pecan, some jam, or an M&M. I colored them green with food coloring, but since I used whole wheat flour (as I always do, for nutrition), they are a bit dubiously brownish-green. Then I rolled them in colored sugar (some yellow, some red, some blue, some white). Sick to your stomach yet?
Anyway, my kids seem to like them. My daughter was sharing some with a friend yesterday, and the friend took a peek and asked suspiciously, "Are there vegetables in there?" When she heard a negative answer, she pressed, "Are there fruits?" My daughter replied it was just food coloring, and the friend gave a contented sigh and dug in. After her first bite, she exclaimed, "Ah, food coloring!"
