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!

As it is Easter we did all our colors in pastels.  Make the royal icing with pasteurized egg white which  gives you your base white icing.  Then color with one drop of coloring at a time until you reach the pale pastel color you want.

Prepare the base icing of the sugar cookies yourself, the outlining and the flooding of the base icing coat.  (For more details about this part see our recipe links below.)  This part is more technically challenging and, well, wee bit tedious, and children will probably not enjoy this part.  I did this part in the dead of night when my little girl was sleeping and by the next day it was completely dry and ready to be decorated.  


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!
