Sugar cookies decorated like Easter eggs on a cooling rack.

Another holiday, and another excuse to decorate sugar cookies! I just adore decorating sugar cookies because of all of the colorful and creative variations that are possible. Just a few weeks ago I made some Shamrock cookies, a couple of which were less-than-traditional, and that is the fun of cookie decorating. The wonderful thing about doing Easter eggs is that they inherently lend themselves to being a blank canvas of sorts. Think of all the fun designs you would make on colored eggs when you were a kid. Now you can do the same thing, but on a cookie. These are perfect for a little something extra on your dessert table this Sunday, and they are sure to be a huge hit with the kids!

Happy Easter!
