Happy Easter!!

Good Sunday morning to you! I woke up to a beautiful, sunny day and that makes me happy. : D Today happens to be Easter, which to me doesn't mean too much. We never do a big family dinner or even get together with family for that matter. It's just a day where the girls get a little something and that is usually candy, in a useful container I might add. No ugly, I'm never gonna use it again Easter baskets in this house! I'm all about organization, so they usually get a cute little metal bucket or something along those lines. We may or may not do an egg hunt. And since we didn't color eggs, I'm thinking no egg hunt this year. I'm just looking forward to spending a lot of the day outside enjoying the warm weather!

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 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!!


  1. Catie, I found your blog from your post on the Fruitful Home Journal. I love these cookies! Can you give your recipe, or is it a family secret? They are adorable and classy at once! I love the style of your blog, the text is too light for me to read at my computer but if I highlight them I can read your sweet descriptions!

  2. @Nicole - Thanks soo much for your kind words!!! It's always fun to get a comment from a reader I don't know! I added the links to the recipes I use to the bottom of this post. I had meant to do that when I first posted it and totally forgot. And thanks for letting me know my font was too light. If you've noticed, I changed the style and color. Let me know if you can read it OK now?



Thanks soo much for stopping by!! Please don't be shy, leave a comment or question. I love hearing from you! If you'd like to hear back from me, please make sure to add your email to your google account. : )
