Easter Egg Cookies


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!



We have shared this recipe a few times on our blog already, so you can find it here (Christmas cookies) and here (autumn cookies).


Thank you for visiting A Homespun Country Life!
