Pantone Cookies

These were part of a birthday celebration; original link here.

And even more Pantone chip cookies can be found here. Designer Kim Neill took client gifts a step further this year after stumbling upon Pantone Chip Tins. In case you’re wondering which cookies went first (we know we were), Kim reports that PMS 485, PMS 183 and Silver 877 seemed to disappear first. Visit’s Kim’s blog to view the recipe.
