One of my favorite things about this time of year are the colors, and these fun and colorful spring cookies definitely fit the bill! They are easy to make and they are perfect for spring festivities. These are also a fun baking activity for the kids because this dough is nice and thick and of course, they will love helping you add the M&Ms.
