This is a pretty basic cookie recipe but it’s a lot of fun because of the colorful candies added to it. To make the cookies pareve, use the chocolate lentils (not the mint version). These are also cute for a shalom zachor or Kiddush. You can choose the appropriate colors and just use them for the cookies. Adorable!!
