At the end of last school year, a parent brought sugar cookies decorated with faces in for a farewell treat. Since my kids are on an eggless diet, they knew those cookies were not for them. But could you blame a kid for desiring? As per their request, I baked up a few batches of eggless face cookies for them to delight in last year.

It’s not every day that we indulge in artificially colored frosting. So as the school year in Florida comes to a close (a few weeks earlier than schools up north), my kids miraculously remembered the sugary treats of their past school year and requested (relentlessly) that I make them again. For snack. For school.
I’m not sure the teachers will appreciate this as much as the kids but hey, it’s the end of the year. Not a bad time to make enemies 😉
This time around I used a sugar cookie recipe, subbing arrowroot powder for the eggs. Half organic white all purpose flour and half organic whole wheat pastry, it made a very nice sugar cookie dough. The kind that tastes great eaten raw. Not that I would know anything about that…
This year’s face cookies…a little moodier looking than last year’s batch!
