We continued our tradition of making tractor cut out cookies to celebrate John Deere's birthday. His actual birthday is February 7th. This year, instead of icing, I made "paint" that the kids brushed on before the cookies were baked. The paint was made with one egg yolk and 1/4 tsp. water and food coloring. I liked painting better than icing, but the end product was not as pretty or as tasty.
