Beautiful failure: rainbow vegan cookies

Never before have I put so much effort into something that turned out to be such a disappointment. These cookies took the better part of four hours to make, plus chilling time. My mistake(s)? Using an untested vegan sugar cutout cookie as my base. Making these cookies required mixing food colouring into six balls of dough, which decreased in size. The dough wasn't sweet or tasty enough to stand alone without icing. It couldn't stand up to all of the mixing required to get the colour evenly distributed. So I sadly threw 90% of these away. Lesson learned. Test first!
