Cookies are one of the best desserts. I hardly ever hear anyone say that they don’t like cookies. I love that I can make simple cookies or decorate the cookies and make them fancy for a special occasion. These are those fancy type cookies. These Easter Egg Cookies are a perfect Easter cookie for everyone. They look like they take a while to make and that the cookie is complicated to make, but honestly it couldn’t be easier. Everyone will think you got these cookies from a local bakery when really, you are able to create the cookies in your own kitchen.
3 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 C soft unsalted butter
1 C granulated sugar
Cookie Cutter: Circle This is a great cookie cutter set that has several sizes and shapes.
Cream the soft butter with the sugar until the combination is smooth not grainy to the touch in a mixing bowl.
Add eggs. Continue to mix.
Add the vanilla. Continue mixing.
Sift the four, baking soda, and salt together.
Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture.
Continue mixing to make sure all ingredients are thoroughly blended.
Make the dough into a ball, wrap it in plastic wrap, completely covering the entire dough ball.
Put in the refrigerator for about 6 hours or overnight. Check to see if the dough is firm.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Pull the cookie dough out of the refrigerator and sit it out to soften up a bit.
Put flour out on the cutting board, rub flour on the rolling pin, and work some flour into
the batter. (if needed).
Roll the dough out on the cutting board and using the cookie cutter begin to make your cookies.
Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Using a metal spatula move the cut cookies to the parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake cookie for 8 minutes. Check to see if the cookies are thoroughly baked.
Take the cookies off of the cookie sheet and put on a wire rack to cool completely. (About 10 minutes).
