   Preparation Time: 0:30
   Cream butter and shortening; gradually add sugar, beating
   well at medium speed of an electric mixer.  Add egg yolks,
   soda, cream of tartar, and vanilla, beating well.
   Gradually add flour, mixing well. Divide dough into 4 equal
   portions.  Color one portion red, one yellow, one green,
   and leave remaining dough plain.  Wrap each separately in
   plastic wrap, and chill at least 1 hour. Hand shape cookies
   into desired designs, or roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness
   on a lightly floured surface and cut with 2-1/2-inch cookie
   cutters.  Place on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake at 350
   degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.   Let cool on cookie sheets 1
   to 2 minutes; remove to wire racks and cool completely.
   Yield: about 5-1/2 dozen.
   NOTE:  You might label our Edible Craft Dough Cookies “For
   Kids Only”--the dough looks and shapes remarkably like the
   colored craft dough that children often play with, but it’s
   totally edible.  Children can hand shape the dough much
   like they do craft dough, or they can roll and cut it with
   cookie cutters.
