Easter Eggs - of the Cookie Variety!

Whew, I'm finished.  By the time you are reading this, I'll have had a long drive, hugged grandbabies, seen lots of family, and be ready to put my feet up and rest!  All of our Easter activities are actually before Easter due to family juggling.  I, for one, don't care what day we do the celebrating... I just want to see my family and enjoy my grandbabies, whichever day(s) I can get my hands on them.  Multi-parent families have always been our way, so we are all used to it.  It makes flexible holiday planning a necessity!

Today's photos are the final ta da of the Easter baking.  We're talking Easter Egg cookies here - big ones, small ones, simple ones, marginally fancy ones...I can say I had fun!  I didn't, because of time constraints due to humidity levels, get to do the wet on top of dry decorating I had planned on...it had to be the thing I let go...just too much on my plate.  I did have leftover flower and butterfly sugar cookies, so I've frozen them and will use them later...and at that time, will try the "layered look" instead of wet on wet that I had to do for these egg shaped cookies.  Still, it was all good.   Very "Eastery"! 

I've also baked off the Easter pastel chocolate chip cookies I froze last week-end...you've hopefully seen the Easter Chicks and the Easter Bunnies I posted ....now everyone is enjoying all the goodies.

So, here they are, my last batch of decorated sugar cookies for Easter!











Happiest of Easters my friends.  May your day be blessed and filled with family, good weather, and happiness!

Bon Appetit, Y'all!!!
