Thinking of Spring today reminded me of the cute cookies I made last year for our Easter celebration. I was told I could bring whatever dessert I would like to make for the family. I racked my brain over cake, trifle, or maybe a pudding. Then I remembered how fun it was to make my Christmas cookies. I was up for the challenge!
I used my Martha Stewart sugar cookie recipe (the only one to use in my opinion), and plain butter cream frosting. I used Wilton's Spring color gels for the coloring. It gives the right shade to your light pinks and blues.
On this bunny I used a Wilton tip made for making grass to produce a fluffy fur. The bow was a Wilton tip designed to make leaves. The cookies were not perfect, but a little sanding sugar and jimmies here and there made them look special. They were a big hit. Who says desserts have to be fancy at a big holiday?
