I'm not sure if I'll be able to post this year's eggs before Easter, but to get you in the mood, here are a few favorites from last year's festivities!
I'm also taking some Easter cookies to accompany our pizza and beer. I made them last night -- they look so cheery!
I wish you could join me for tea!
Here's the quick recipe!
Cream 2 sticks of butter and 1/2 c. sugar
Add 1/4 t. salt
Add 2 c. flour
(I added a bit of vanilla and some lemon too; you could use peppermint, others.)
Put as balls on cookie sheet (I use a silpat on mine) and gently press down.
Bake 300 for 15-17 minutes.
To decorate -- I used a thin lemon juice/powdered sugar glaze and topped some with coconut and jelly beans to look like little nests; others were decorated with sugar and jelly beans. You could dip in chocolate or skip a glaze altogether and put on sugar before baking, or flavor with another extract. Cool overnight till glaze hardens. Then make another batch because they really are addictive!
