Why I Love This Recipe

One day while perusing the baking goods isle in the grocery store, I noticed an item, a new item, neon food coloring. Of course I bought it but ended up not having a need for food coloring, especially bright blue or purple. Then, while making Christmas cookies, I decided to throw in some lime green food coloring and thus the Stephanie cookie was born! It's named after my friend Stephanie because lime green is her favorite color. They're kind of rich so don't eat too many of them at a time.

**WARNING** Because of their color, these cookies do not brown, so watch out for that.

The Stephanie Cookie does have equally colorful siblings depending on what color you use from the neon box. If you use the blue food coloring they are "Windex Cookies", if you use pink they are "Panda Cookies" and if you use purple they are "People Eater Cookies".

Ingredients You'll Need

3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon milk
A whole heck of a lot of neon green food coloring


Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt or mix it up yourself and set that all aside.

Put the butter and sugar in an electric mixer bowl and beat until light in color.

Add the egg and milk and then combine everything in the bowel together.

Break out the food coloring. Put about 10 drops in the cookie batter and then mix it all together. Contemplate its color and if it isn't green enough put more food coloring in. Repeat until its shade of green pleases you.

Put the mixer on low speed and gradually add flour as it mixes. Beat until the dough is all wraped around your mixer wisk and not on the bottom/side of the bowel.

Here you can choose what kind of cookie you want. If you choose to cookie cut and make them like Christmas cookies follow the next set of directions.

If you just want to ball up the cookies and not bother with cookie cutters, skip this coming section.

Divide the dough in half and wrap each half in waxed paper. Put it all into the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Sprinkle wherever and whatever you're going to be rolling with powdered sugar. Using one batch of dough at a time, roll out dough to 1/4-inch thick.

You should know how to use a cookie cutter, make whatever shapes you want and don't put them too close together on the baking sheet, they don't spread too much.

In my oven they need to bake for 7 to 9 minutes, but every oven's different so just watch out for smoke.

Now for you ball-loving folk-Wrap your dough in wax paper and refrigerate it for about an hour just for firmness' sake.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Roll your dough into balls about an inch in diameter. and put them on the cookie sheets. They don't expand too much but they are going to collapse a little.

In my oven they need to bake for 8 to 10 minutes, but every oven's different so just watch out for smoke.
