Sugar Cookies are basically my go-to cookie for any holiday. And one of my favourite holidays for making and decorating sugar cookies is Easter. The gorgeous pale tones, the intricate designs, the colourful variety. Easter egg sugar cookies are the definition of edible art.
And who says art has to be complicated? You certainly don't have to be Picasso to create a masterpiece. A few swirls here, a few polka dots there, and a few stripes is all you need to create adorable, simple easter egg sugar cookies.
If you are planning to make this, start baking these at least a day in advance. Why? Well, first, the cookies need to completely cool before you start icing them. Second, once you ice the first layer, you will need to set the cookies aside for about an hour to let the icing harden before you apply the second layer (white designs). Then, once you are all done making these cookies pretty, you will want to let the icing harden completely (preferably overnight) so that they do not smudge once when you are ready to store them or package them as gifts.
