CMYK Cookies

We got a new color printer at my WSU office last week - HOORAY!!!!
And to celebrate the colorful occasion, I baked some graphic-design-y CMYK cookies. I let Bea nibble on one after it came out of the oven this morning and her teeth didn't turn black or blue, so that's a bonus. You never know with these intense food colors.

For those not familiar with the term CMYK, it refers to the four inks used in color printing: cyan, magenta, yellow and key black (there's a very printer-geeky explanation as to why it's called key black, but I will not bore you with it here.)

My favorite part of making ice box cookies is slicing through the frozen dough. I just love those bright stripes.
