Easter Cookies

Perfect for beginners looking to make a delicious dessert for Easter Sunday! These Easter cookies are so fun and easy to make for the whole family!

 

Last year I went to a fun cookie decorating class at Petite Party Studio and learned a few tricks with making sugar cookies and decorating them. Ever since then I have been hooked on decorating cookies. Unfortunately it is one of those things that I like to do when my kids aren’t around. Most of my cooking I do with music going and my kids running wild around me. Decorating sugar cookies I like to do in the quiet with no kids running wild around me. Maybe its a little therapeutic for me. Either way I love it! And I also love decorating for holidays so this is the perfect win!
This recipe is really easy to put your own flare on because you don’t have to follow the exact design that I put on my bunnies. You can use different colors by adding food coloring, create a different face, or even make the bunny a different shape. Easter is the perfect holiday to experiment with cooking because its all about gathering with your friends and family while eating some delicious food! My husband and kids love eating all my recipes for this holiday especially.

How to prepare the Easter cookies

These bunny cookies are a good cookie to start with if you are a beginner. There are only a few simple steps and the outcome is super cute! I only did flood frosting because I didn’t want to make 2 different types for only 12 small cookies but the taste is better with 2 kinds of frosting. The tutorial for both those frostings is here.

So you can either just make the Glaze Icing like I did or if you are doing more cookies then make the Flood and Royal Icing. Here are the steps for the bunny cookies. The shape of your cookie cutter will make the instructions defer slightly. But at least you will get the main point.

 

First, outline all of the cookies with the glaze icing
Then fill them all in and let them dry for 30 minutes

Royal Icing:
