So my favorite celebration of the year is here, next to Halloween and Thanksgiving. We have a full program this weekend, hosting a full day second annual Pridetini/BBQ party on Saturday at our place where revelers have their choice of a rainbow array of martini flavors. On Sunday we will march in the parade down fifth avenue with The Upper Delaware GLBT.
Last year I went all out and made ton of rainbow themed food. This year I just didn't have the time. Instead I summoned the powers of Trader Joe's, bought a bunch of rainbow candy and made these cookies.
After whipping up a quick sugar cookie recipe, I used a kitchen scale to help divide the dough into six different portions and tinted each a color of a rainbow. The dough went into the fridge for a few hours then I rolled each color out, cut into long strips, and starting with the red color, laid them down next to each other in roygbv order. I ran the rolling pin over the combined colors to seal them together and cut out the cookies using letter cutters P R I D E.
The scraps were used to make rainbow colored tie dye versions.
It's going to be an amazing weekend. Happy Pride!
