It’s Pride Week here in Toronto—a week of celebrating the past, present and future of LGBTQ individuals and communities. The big Pride Parade takes place on Sunday, July 3 and there are Family Pride events running both Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.
One of the most iconic symbols of LGBTQ community pride is the rainbow flag, representing the diversity of the community. As you may have noticed, we’re a big fan of rainbow-coloured treats around here (see: Rainbow Pudding and Rainbow Cupcakes), so when we came across a recipe for Rainbow Cookies to celebrate gay pride over on the blog Hungry Rabbit, we couldn’t wait to try them.
What you’ll need:
• Lemon zest
• Unsalted butter
• Vanilla extract
• All-purpose flour
• Egg white
• Food colouring (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)
You’ll find the full recipe for these Rainbow Cookies, along with some gorgeous photos, over on Hungry Rabbit. And be sure to read the whole post—it is not only touching, but also inspiring. Ken, the culinary master behind the blog, writes, “These Rainbow Cookies are my dedication & appreciation for everyone who has the heart to fearlessly love themselves and their partners. Have a cookie and radiate some joy.”
Happy Pride, everyone!
Now that summer is in full swing, the kids are...
