Happy Easter Chickies! Did you have a wonderful day celebrating with family, friends and this beautiful weather?! I sure did!! We couldn’t have lucked out more with the weather! We did appetizers and drinks out on the patio and it was such a tease! I made Easter cookies that were the cutest in the world! They were not the easiest to make but let me tell you they were well worth it!
I followed the Country Crock recipe for the #makeityours campaign and the cookies came out delicious! I used these adorable cookie cutters that I picked up at Sur La Table that I just couldn’t resist. Similar ones here, I couldn’t find the ones that I used online. Here is the recipie:
- 1 cup Country Crock® Spreadable Sticks or Tub, cold from the refrigerator
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 large egg yolk
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1 to 2 cups of your choice of mix-ins
Preheat oven to 375°. Mix Country Crock® Spread, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, egg, egg yolk and vanilla in large bowl until well mixed. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda until blended. (Dough will be soft and creamy.)
Add your favorite mix-ins in any combination, and mix until every spoonful of dough has some of the delicious mix-ins.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls on ungreased baking sheets 3-inches apart.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Cool 1 minute on wire rack; remove from sheets and cool completely.
Add toppings and decorations if desired. I used cookie icing and sugar sprinkles that I picked up from the grocery store and Michael’s craft store.
I think that the hardest part was the decorating of the cookies because if you don’t put the icing far enough in the cookie then it expands and the icing falls off the cookies. I used the cookie icing to make a dot for the tail and put little white sprinkles on to resemble the cotton tail.
