I love bold color; it puts me on that high that some get from sugar. I think life is more exciting in bold colors and try to add them wherever I can. I originally made these cookies rolled simply in icing sugar, but as I sat looking at the jar of non-pareils sitting in my pantry, I knew I had to give them a try. I'm glad I did!
