Tips on Decorating Easter Cookies


by Christine Steendahl

For those of you anxiously awaiting Easter time, the one thing that makes Easter incredibly special are decorated Easter cookies. Just like Christmas cookies have become fundamental to Christmas time, so have Easter cookies become a part of Easter tradition. There are numerous great ways to dress up the Easter season and embellished Easter cookies are just one of them. Here are some tips on putting smiles on the faces of your kids or friends this Easter season.

Decorated Easter Cookies Come in All Shapes and Sizes 
Decorated Easter cookies can come in all shapes and sizes and if you can conceptualize it you can readily make it. For most people Easter is affiliated with bunnies, rabbits, chicks, lambs and Easter eggs. For the most part you can generally find most of these shapes and more in the form of cookie cutters.

Cookie cutters are generally easy to buy at almost any discount shops, grocers, and craft shops. Or you can almost always design them yourself- you just need some pliable metal and an idea. If you don't have a cookie cutter, no big deal. In fact many people that are artistically inclined choose to cut their own shapes out of cookie dough by hand, without using any cookie cutter.

Decorated Easter Cookies Start Out with Delectable Cookie Dough
The most essential thing about the embellished Easter cookies that you prepare is that they need to taste just as great as they look. No one likes a horrible tasting cookie. For many chefs, a satisfying cookie begins with delicious cookie dough. Yes, you can buy the dough already pre-made and ready to cut, but for the purists out there, begin with a family recipe that is either chocolate chip or of the sugar cookie nature.

Decorate Your Cookie Using the Accessories of the Trade
It's easy to adorn your Easter cookies, just make sure you have all the accompaniments of the trade. They usually include, food coloring, colored frosting, sprinkles, delicious candies such as licorice, M& M's, nuts, marshmallows, etc. Once you have gotten the cookie shape, let yourself or your little ones use their creative magic to make cutely decorated Easter cookies. You can find food coloring and many cool decorating tools at your local supermarket. You can even buy ready-made Easter embellishments to add to your cookies, cakes or Easter eggs.

Presentation Presentation Presentation
Once your newly designed Easter cookies are complete, make sure to show them off to the rest of the family and even give them away to your coworkers and friends. Enjoy the Easter spirit by flaunting your delicious and artful embellished Easter cookies.

One original trick is to take some pictures of your adorned Easter cookies and include them in your annual Easter scrapbook, so you can regularly look back at the tasty and beautifully adorned Easter cookies that you have made.

You can also write the cookie recipe on an attractive note card and include a photo of your Easter cookies to give to family and friends. Most everyone appreciates handmade gifts, especially when it's a beloved family recipe.

If you are looking to magnify your gratification of Easter this year, take part in creating decorated Easter cookies.
