How to: Make Pantone Chip Cookies

The cookie is typically a rustic goodie. There are fancy pastry chefs who create works of art out of pulled sugar, gels, and ring molds, but the cookie typically maintains a more rustic appeal.

Until now…

Designer Kim Neill came up with these brilliant solid- and metallic-coated Pantone cookies to give as gfits to give to her clients.

The idea hit me when I came across these fab Pantone Chip Tins at Blick’s Art Supply. They came in different colors but I picked up six tins in classic 186 C. Loaded with cookies they make the perfect client gift. These cookies were so FUN to make! Easy too. Just rolled out some cookie dough and sliced into rectangles to bake. I made one big batch of royal icing in white then had a little bowl where I mixed colors one at a time as I went. I used an edible marker to write the chip numbers on once the icing was set.
