(Optional- you can use your own recipe)
Sift flour and sugar into a large bowl. Add the vanilla. In the smallest bowl, soften butter. In the remaining bowl, lightly beat the eggs and add to the mix along with the butter. Mix together with an electric beater for two minutes. Split the mix in two by drawing a line down the middle with a spoon, then transfer one half to your egg bowl. It does not matter if there is still egg in the bowl, just mix it in.

Colour each half with a food colouring of your choice. Red and green are great for the holidays, purple and orange work nicely for halloween. Keep in mind that blue is difficult to produce because it will work against the orange/yellow of the egg in the mixture. Stir in the food colouring with two separate spoons, you don't want to combine them.

If you really wanted to, you could add some other kind of flavouring like an essence or citrus zest. I was thinking about doing a chocolate chilli and lime which would be nice.
nice colour combination!
So Adorable! They look so tasty and I love the colors. Makes it look even tastier!
