Pig cookies

One of our favorite people at the market is Dana, who manages the Riverdog stand and thus hands us our vegetable box every week. Dana's other job at Riverdog is to take care of their pigs (for pictures of the pigs, check out the Hog Blog).

We wanted to bring Dana cookies, and found a wonderful pig-shaded cookie cutter at Sur La Table. Unfortunately, the cookies expanded a bit in cooking, but they were still delicious.

2 3/4 cup flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/8 tsp baking soda, 1 cup butter, 1 1/2 cup sugar, 1 egg, a few drops red food coloring; roll out dough with rolling pin and cut with cutter, bake 7-8 minutes at 350 degrees.
