PAINTING EDIBLE SPRINGERLE COOKIES:
     
     Paint cookies after drying overnight but BEFORE baking.  Use paste food colors available in cake decorating shops.  Mix 1 egg yolk with 1/4 teaspoon of cold water and Mix well with a fork.  Divide this into as many small containers or "puddles" as you wish to have colors.  To these containers (or "puddles" on aluminum foil) add some paste food colors and mix with toothpicks.
     
     Keep in mind that the yolk is yellow and will change the hue of the paste colors.  The colors also change slightly as the cookies bake.  Use narrow artist's paintbrushes that are new or are only used for working with food.

NON-EDIBLE COOKIE ORNAMENTS
     A ribbon hole can easily be made in unbaked cookies with a toothpick or small stirring straw.  Paint cookies AFTER baking with water colors.  A clear matte finish Krylon spray and freezer storage preserves the ornaments for many years of use and enjoyment.
