Vintage Easter Cookies

filed under: Cookies · Miscellaneous on March 31, 2010

So I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to make some cookies for hubby’s work. The theme was a birthday/secular Easter. (for all those folks who wonder “why no crosses or other religious symbols?”)

I was so excited!!

Until I was halfway through decorating.

I realized that I had made some of the ugliest cookies ever. My color choices were weird. My designs were awkward. My concept is weak.

Oh well.

I do not have the energy nor the time to start over.

I wanted BIG Easter eggs (these are about the size of your hand) so I had to make my own template and cut out each individual cookie.

I was going for vintage colors… so I added a drop of yellow food coloring to everything but the white.

Everything was loosely based on this cookie.

In theory kind of cute… but who wants to eat a sugar cookie with hardly any frosting??? Hello!

Live and learn.

    I’m in love with the “tweet” cookie! That is so cute and so you. 🙂 The flowers are awesome! I’d love a pinky full of your talent, please. 🙂

    Because you don’t have anything on your plate, how about some pictures of your cuties! It seems like forever since I’ve seen them.
