A few days ago the girls and I did do some Easter cookies though. I'm not 100% Easter Scrooge, heehee. I thought I'd share a few pixs with you. They turned out soo cute! Although I'm in desperate need of an egg shaped cookie cutter. I have 4 bunny ones, but no egg!
Cute, huh?? I LOVE the icing recipe I have. It makes them look professional, even when Ms. A decorates them. Take a second look, I'll wait. Bet you can't tell which ones she did? And yes, she really did make a couple on that plate. That icing is just that good! Shhh, the secret is corn syrup mixed in with the sugar and milk. It is soo relaxing decorating them. I think the first night we did some it took about two hours and I could have kept going except my chair was getting uncomfortable. If you've ever been to Color Me Mine, it's like that. Relaxing and therapeutic in some strange way. Give a try.
Well, hope you all have a fabulous Easter Sunday!! Any big plans for the day? What does Easter mean to you and your family?
~As requested, here are the recipes for the sugar cookies and the cookie icing I used. Unfortunately I can not take credit for either recipe, I found them on AllRecipes.com. I'll share with you that I've always made 1/2 of the sugar cookie recipe and instead of using 2 1/2 cups of flour, I use just 2 cups. I find it makes the dough easier to roll out. And don't let 1/2 a recipe fool you, it still makes about 60 cookies! If you try them, let me know how they turn out. I've had success with them every time. Happy baking!!
