Rainbow Cookies


Have I mentioned that I recently participated in a fundraiser?

No? You didn't know??

Well, then, let me tell ya!

Cookies for Kids' Cancer is a group that raises money for Pediatric Cancer research. It's a wonderful organization that helps so many families. 
Can you believe that Cancer claims the lives of more children annually than any other disease - more than asthma, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis & AIDS combined. *Stats from HERE*

That makes me sad.

So, my daughter's school, Morgan Academy, held a Bake Sale and sold Raffle tickets to raise money donate to the foundation. 

I baked these Rainbow Cookies for the fundraiser.
 These made me happy!

I saw the Jell-o Cookies on I Heart Naptime and I followed her recipe. Only, I made all the colors of the rainbow.
