If you want a fun way to decorate cutout cookies without frosting or sprinkles, this is the way to do it! Mom would tint egg wash with food coloring and then paint on the colors before she baked the cookies. It was so much fun to be creative in the kitchen with her when I was young! It made me love to cook because it is something I did with her...
