For each color of cookie paint, lightly beat 1 or 2 egg whites with a fork Add a few drops of food coloring. Stir until blended....That's it!
Apply the paint with small "artist's" paint brushes, available in craft and department stores everywhere, in packs of 10 or 12 brushes for a dollar or two. Always wash new paint brushes before using them.

How detailed or elaborate they're painted depends on the painters. This is a fun job for kids!
