We have a favorite tradition for Easter. No, it’s not dyeing eggs, or having an Easter egg hunt, although that does sound fun! Every year we make our classic cut-out cookies, bake them into egg shapes, and frost them with pastel colors.
We each have a role in the process: Mom makes the dough, Elisabeth bakes the cookies, Kerstin makes the frosting, and then all three of us girls frost them, and Gabrielle adds the M&Ms.
Here’s a sample of all the colors of frosting that we mixed up this weekend.
Elisabeth made this tie dye style cookie. So pretty!
One year as a joke, we frosted a dozen of the cookies like this fried egg one, and added a sprinkle of sugar and finely crushed instant coffee to look like salt and pepper. They were a big hit!
Thank you for visiting A Homespun Country Life!
