Eating Earth Day

Every holiday and celebration of any kind needs food right?  Earth day shouldn't be any different and be sure to use your cloth napkins with these. 
I used my Aunt Joan's sugar cookie recipe which is simple and sweet, I'm sure she won't mind me sharing...
Mix together:
1 cup butter softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon of almond extract (make sure to advise eaters with allergies if you use real extract)
When blended add
2 1/2 cups of flour
2 tsp of baking powder
mix well.

For the circles you can roll and cut them out or roll a ball of dough with your hand and flatten with a spatula.
bake at 325F for 8-10 min.
When cool ice with blue and green swirls, I'm sure you could be more precise with geography, but I really wanted to eat them rather than please cartographers.
