Easter Cookies In 4 Easy Steps

I always love to bake for Easter. Here is one of my favourite recipes that I like to whipped up…. a batch of my easy sugar cookies – with a twist.

These sugar cookies are already decorated! I’ve incorporated soft sprinkles into the cookie dough before rolling it out and cutting it into Easter shapes. The effect means that they look like they are already decorated with pastel coloured spots.

Orange Chocolate Drizzle Cookies That Melt In Your Mouth

Our orange tree is laden with fruit again, so I’m finding ways to use up all the delicious fruit before the cockatoos eat them all.

We have 4 dogs at our house at the moment (we are dog-sitting 2 dogs, as well as having 2 dogs of our own), and they have been chasing the cockatoos!  Thanks to this extra protection, there are plenty of oranges on our orange tree at the moment.

These cookies are delicious. The combination of chocolate and orange in a cookie is always a winner, and the soft biscuits just melt in your mouth!

Supremely Simple Easter Egg Choc-Chip Cookie Recipe

So you have leftover Easter eggs in the house, huh? You’re not alone! We have a box of them in the pantry that I’m slowly sharing with the kids. They are still small enough (at 1.5 yrs and 3.5yrs old) to ration them out to. They don’t even notice if one goes missing some nights when my cup of tea and belly are lonely.

My youngest son and I have just made some of my Ultimate Choc Chip Cookies with some of the left over Easter Eggs – the perfect way to use them up. You can find the recipe here.

Simply crumble the Easter Eggs in your clean hands, and add to the mixture instead of the chocolate chips.

How simple is that?

Easy Sugar Cookies in 4 Steps

I love this recipe. It tastes great, is perfect for cutout biscuits, and is really simple.

I’ve used it countless times, and each time it has worked perfectly. On this occasion, I was making biscuits for my boy’s birthday party. Their birthdays are a day apart, so it looks like they’ll be sharing their birthday parties each year!

My eldest son just loves using the rolling pin, cutting out the shapes, and eating the dough scraps when he thinks I’m not watching!

These Coconut Biscuits Won’t Last Long Anywhere

It’s always good to have an easy, failsafe biscuit recipe. One you can turn to in a hurry, or when you just need to unwind and bake your heart out.

These coconut biscuits are delicious. Crispy around the edge, and slightly chewy in the centre – they are definitely very moreish. You won’t be able to stop at one when they’re fresh out of the oven. And I know from experience that they won’t last long with kids (or husbands) around!
