Easter is just around the corner and this is the first year that Eric and I will not be home to spend the holiday with our families. Since we won’t make it home for the holiday I wanted to send something special to the family. To make up for this, I spent Sunday afternoon making easter themed cookie mixes. These cookie mixes are really quick and easy to make. They are also adorable!
I used Bakerella’s recipe for Cowgirl Cookies as the base for my Easter cookies. Bakerella blows my mind. From cake pops to cup cakes everything on this blog looks so damn tasty! I followed the Cowgirl Cookie recipe very closely, only leaving out the nuts. To check out Bakerella’s reicpe click here.
Instead of using her labels I made my own Easter themed version. To make my labels I used free scallop medallion clip art from Pugly Pixel, which is one of my favourite sources of free clip art on the web. I also used of Geomancy and Franchise typefaces, two of my favorite free fonts. If you want to print my labels and whip up a batch of these lovely cookie jar gifts click for the Happy Easter label, the Easter Cookies label and the directions.
I thought about using Mini Eggs instead of M&M’s but was worried that they would be too big. Next year I will have to making these cookies with Mini Eggs before hand to see how they turn out. I really love mini eggs.
