First, we need to make the All Natural Red Food Coloring. Begin by peeling and chopping the
Dried Cranberries (1/2 cup)
Put the chopped beet pieces and the chopped dried cranberries in a food processor or blender. Add the Juice from
Water (1 cup)
, then start blending! Blend for about 1 minute.
Strain the mixture into a little bottle or jar using a fine sieve. Press it down with a spoon to help the liquid through.
Preheat oven to 170 degrees C (340 degrees F).
Unsalted Butter (2/3 cup)
and mix the
Brown Sugar (1/2 cup)
with the butter.
Then mix in the
All-Purpose Flour (2 2/3 cups)
Salt (1 pinch)
Vanilla Extract (1 tsp)
Brandy (1 Tbsp)
. Mix the ingredients until they are all combined.
Separate the dough into 4 parts for each color - one natural, one pink, one green, and one brown.
Color your dough using
Matcha Powder (3 Tbsp)
, the Homemade Red Food coloring (4 tablespoons), and
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (3 Tbsp)
