Easy Easter Egg Cookies

Sometimes we take our “20%” and make cookies! Brenda has made these cookies, and memories, with her kids for years. As the tradition continues, we thought it would be fun to share!

What You Need

  • 1 cup Butter, softened
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar, sifted
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 ¾ cup Flour
  • 1 Tbsp. Lemon peel, finely shredded  (or 1 tsp. lemon or vanilla extract)
  • Food coloring

 How It’s Made:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

In a large mixing bowl beat butter with a mixer for about 30 seconds.  Add sugar; beat on low speed until combined. Add egg and beat until combined; add half the flour and continue to combine. Stir in remaining flour and lemon peel or extract using a spoon. 

Divide dough into three portions.  Leave one untinted, and tint the other two the colors you desire.  

Snip a small corner (about the size of a pencil) of a quart-sized heavy plastic bag; fill with one color of dough.  Repeat for remaining colors. 

Onto ungreased cookie sheet, pipe several ovals; pipe designs in to connect the sides of the ovals.

Bake for 8-10minutes or until edges begin to brown.  Remove from oven and let cool for one minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 18 cookies.  Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
