When it comes to Easter I always feel the need to bake sugar cookies. It goes back to my days when I was fresh out of college and my roommate and I would spend the entire weekend making Easter cookies in a tiny NYC apartment. Because it takes so much time, I usually take a day off work so I can have an entire day to focus on the sweet treats without the demands of the kiddies. Last year was no exception and I got to try out my 'new' Martha by Mail Hatching Bunny giant cookie cutter (from the 90's, found on eBay). The resulting to cookies turned out so cute that I packaged up one to take with us to an Easter Wedding event to accompany our card.
Here are some action shots....To add icing details to the little cookies I use a toothpick. This allows me to put a tiny dot for the nose and a small line of pink for the ear details.
For the gold accents, I spray the gold paint into a container so I can collect some of the liquid paint and then use a paintbrush to apply the paint onto the cookies.
Finally, this is a favorite picture from my day of Easter cookie baking...
