Rainbow Deliciousness-

 Savannah loves any and all holidays because she knows it usually involves candy, so since it is now March,  I told her about St. Patty's day. She got excited about the leprechauns, gold and especially the rainbows and thought it would be fun to make our own rainbows.
So we thought, why not make rainbow sugar cookies? 
The girls had a blast adding the food coloring, rolling them out and then of course the 
best part- eating them!
They were 
It is one of the best sugar cookie recipes ever (you can find it at the end of this post)!

Sugar Cookies-
1 Cup Butter, softened
2 eggs
4 1/2 Cups Four
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 Cup Sour Cream
Cream butter and sugar till fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla; add dry ingredients
and sour cream, alternating and mixing well after each addition. Cover or wrap in wax paper and chill until firm enough to roll out. Roll on floured surface and cut out. Bake at 350* for 8-9 minutes.
