Happy Easter! This year, instead of our usual Easter Eggs, we decided to make some Easter Cookies instead. I love Easter Eggs, especially the ones we make from natural Easter Egg dye, but sometimes I find it rather stressful to have that many eggs to eat up. We shouldn't really eat that many eggs because both I and my daughter are eczema prone and too many eggs means itchy. And so we switched it up and did Easter Cookies. And you know what? Making and decorating these cute Easter Cookies was a super duper fun and creative project to do with my little girl, as fun or maybe even more fun than doing our usual Easter Eggs! Plus now we get to eat all these yummilicious beautiful to look at cookies!
Essential, of course, to Easter Cookies is that you find an Easter egg cookie cutter. I found one after much searching, sadly there are not a lot of cookie cutters here in Hong Kong. I end up buying almost all the cookie cutters that I find, who can resist such cuteness? My 老公 has been eyeing my every growing bag of cookie cutters with something like despair. Well, never mind, as long as I see his hand reaching into the cookie jar every day!
And of course you have to have your itsy bitsy bunny and lambie cookie cutters. Didn't my little girl do a good job with her little Easter animal cookies? Kids will just love making these. It's just like a craft or painting project, except you get to eat your project! How cool is that!
Once your base coat is on and completely dried, it's time to call all the little artists out! Just let them go free with their eggs and see what wonderful creations they can come up with! Hope you liked our kid project hand decorated Easter Cookies. Happy Easter to all!
The recipe and techniques used for sugar cookies, pasteurized eggs and royal icing is the same as used for our yearly decorated Christmas Sugar Cookies here.
