You will also need Red food coloring for the shirts. As well as Blue, Yellow, and Black if you intend to make an away-team.

I love this and can imagine everyone at a party cruelly maiming and eating the redshirts first so that you have like 10 science officers left.
Adorable! I shared it on facebook - I know too many Star Trek nerds not to. :D
Oh those are so adorable I could just eat them up. ;)
Going to share these at the ST fan web site. :D
My husband laughed so hard at that comic that I thought I'd have to intervene. These cookies will be a HUGE hit at his upcoming birthday. Thanks for the inspiration!
