Broccoli Cookies?

I made green sugar cookies with green and regular sugar on top yesterday. The sugar cookies were the whole wheat ones I've posted about before, so they are a tad darker than regular cookies to begin with.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, or as my oldest calls it, Sam's Patrick's Day, I thought I'd make them green.

After I added the coloring, Mister Lawyer saw the dough and commented that it looked like broccoli dough. Sadly, he was right. The coloring and the whole wheat dough combined to look like I was making broccoli cookies.

The kids gave me The Eyebrow and I had to assure them repeatedly that these were Delightfully Festive St. Paddy's Day confections and not Sugared Broccoli Bombs.

Taken outside because the light was better....

But they tasted good. And that's what counts, right?
